Pokémon Direct Summary

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blhaSxUJ-OU

The recently finished Pokémon Direct gave some great new information about Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, as well as shedding some light on a new service being launched alongside the two games called Pokémon Bank.

New Pokémon?

Eagle-eyed fans have spotted that a new Pokémon makes a very brief appearance in the Direct broadcast. There’s no further information on the Pokémon. But we’ll bring updates when they arrive!

Pokémon Bank

pokemon-bank-graphic

This service will allow players to store their Pokémon online in a central place and will work across different copies of Pokémon X & Y. There will be an annual fee, but Pokémon Bank will be able to hold up to 3,000 Pokémon and is accessible anywhere you have a 3DS compatible internet connection.

Sorting and moving Pokémon has been made easy with search tools which allow players to look for Pokémon of a certain type or sort them by different criteria.

Mega Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise

Mega Venusaur

“When Venusaur becomes Mega Venusaur, the flower on the Pokémon’s back blooms even more fantastically than before. Its legs and frame become more sturdy to support the weight of the huge flower.”

Mega Venusaur’s type remains the same, but its ability becomes Thick Fat which reduces damage from TWO of its weaknesses: Fire-type & Ice-type attacks. The Mega Evolution also grants it increased Defense and Special Defense.

Mega Charizard

 “When Charizard becomes Mega Charizard, its pointed horns and long tail give the Pokémon a look of sleek sharpness. Mega Charizard is in a league of its own when it comes to flying prowess, able to reach incredible heights.”

Mega Charizard also retains its original Fire/Flying typing (sorry to those of you who wanted Fire/Dragon!), but does get an exciting new ability: Drought!  Perfect for Sunny Day teams! The official site has confirmed that it has improved Special Attack.

Mega Blastoise

“The two rocket launchers on Blastoise’s shoulders turn into a single huge cannon when it Mega Evolves into Mega Blastoise. This cannon boasts a blast range so great that it can strike targets more than six miles away!”

Mega Blastoise, like the rest, retains its Water typing, but gains a new ability introduced in Generation VI: Mega Launcher. This ability raises the power of “pulse” type moves, such as Water Pulse and Dark Pulse.

Pokémon X & Y Special Edition 3DS XLs

XY-3DS-XL

For North American and European Pokémon fans, the two exclusive X & Y-themed 3DS XL models have been announced for sale outside of Japan. They come in a blue or red edition to correlate with the games.

  • belmad

    They all look kinda disproportional to me, I don’t know, especially Venusaur.

    But I’ve always dreamt of Grass pokemon with Thick Fat, finally there is one.

    • DDD

      i think charizards proportions are good now, because before he was a bit chubby lol

  • GerudoPrince

    Exciting news! MegaCharizard looks amazing. Blastoise is ok, and Venusaur would have been also amazing if the pink flower on its head didn’t look so plain…but I’ll live 😉

    • GerudoPrince

      ..but seriously I wish I could peel it off. It’s like a “kick me” sign or something..

      • Daniel Rojas

        You know, of the 3.. Venusaur is the one that looks better to me, and I never really liked him xD

  • belmad

    Two things are off in new screenshots:

    1.Vivillion’s colourless mini sprite
    2.Magnezone’s gender

    • GerudoPrince

      1. Gender difference/region differences/spinda-like differences
      2. Magnezone, are you a boy? Or a girl?

    • Jimmone

      Vivillon’s wings have the same affect as a kaleidoscope and apparently change colour when seen from different angles!
      It’s not “off” as you said because it came from the real nintendo website and they may be giving genders to all genderless pokemon (maybe to let them be bred?) but obviously not legendaries 😉

      • belmad

        Calm down and think about God within us then read my post again and think about what I meant by “off”. You’ll reach the light then.

  • My body has wonderguard ability because I’m on the floor and I can’t get up unless I have my weakness (X and Y) in my hands.

    Charizard with Drought and Venasaur with Thick Fat is just the greatest news since Fairy type lol.

    If johto starters get mega forms than I hope Mega Meganium becomes Grass/Fairy

    • Daniel Rojas

      I wonder about Meganium. They don’t seem to be adding types left and right. Although he is too “grass-basic”, so a little change would be nice.
      Charizard-Drought makes me think Feraligator should have Drizzle and Swift Swim!! xD

      NOTE: I thought your avatar said “fart” “poop”.. I feel super childish now..

  • DDD

    Charizard will be a force since he has drought. if a team opens with a mega charizard then its already over. that fire blast will be strong than Reshiram’s goddamit! definitely getting chespin and charmander 😀 i just hope they release a good water type since im choosing charmander…

    oh and i guess blastoise is literally a tank now 😛 lol

  • gość

    all are really very good but hope next starters get better typing’s and abilities.

  • Mono

    Hey guys, its Mono. If you think about it, the starters we wont recieve, we can also get them by using the PSS in X and Y. So all of us can get each Kanto starter 😀

  • MacSkiddo

    Mega blastoise should have been Water/Steel and Charizard should have been Fire/Dragon

    • zobat78

      I for one don’t want Charizard to get beaten by a Jigglypuff…Not that i hate Fairy types (It’s cool to me)…

      • TheRece25

        Lol yes, I think they did that because of fairy types

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        I think Charizard would be able to take a hit from Jigglypuff considering Fairy type attacks are “Not very Effective” against Fire types, plus Jigglypuff’s Base Attack and Special Attack stats aren’t very high.

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        The reason I think fairy types can beat Dragon types are because In some Fairy Tales, Dragons are the antagonists (Bad guy/Villain) and are beaten by the protagonist (Good guy/Hero), a Knight. So, in fairy tales, dragons are defeated. Rearrange that and you get Fairy Defeat Dragon. Just what I think.

      • Senoel the Turtwick

        Um, Fairy attacks would do normal damage to Charizard then.

    • Bo

      Water/Steel is a bad defensive typing. It’s weak to Ground and Fighting.
      Fire/Dragon would have made Charizard weak to Ground and Dragon.

    • Prince Azulon

      Yes! I agree. Blastoise should have been Water/Steel with Nordic influences.

    • Dominic

      I know!!! You have giant metal cannons sticking out of your back Blastoise, you have no business not being steel… But Charizard is really just a flying lizard to me. I mean he looks like a dragon but there’s nothing magical or mythical so wanting him to be a Dragon is like wanting Sudowoodo to be a grass type, IMHO.

  • TheRece25

    Cool.. I can wait til coro for more XY Pokes =]

    • DDD

      when is corrocorro?

      • ShinyXatu

        About a week from today.

        • DDD

          sweet thanks

  • ShinyXatu

    I have some mixed feelings right now; with all this attention Mega Evolution has been getting, I truly worry that new Pokemon ideas will be scrapped in favor of them. However, I really do like the Mega Evolution concept; I was just hoping for something fresh today.

  • FGCLove

    I don’t get the point with Mega Blatoise ability, Mega Luncher. It doesn’t seem fair to me. But we will see though.

    • DDD

      all i does is raise pulse moves. like dragon, dark and water pulse.

    • belmad

      I bet Clauncher or its evo will get Mega Launcher. I mean, they should.

  • TheRece25

    Oh but I HATE it says a FEE….. WTF!!!!

    • DDD

      500 yen isn’t that much

      • TheRece25

        A fee is a fee… and their shouldn’t be one.. My mind won’t change

        • Ellie

          It’s a small fee for a yearly service of extra, optional storage AND what amounts to poke-insurance (having your uploaded pokemon still there if you game is damaged / stolen / lost).

          Oh, and this is also a new version of software that has ALWAYS been sold (Ranch, Box). Considering that this version doesn’t require having a console and basically eliminates any doubts of future compatibility, I think it’s more than fair for them to charge a fee in order to run the servers they will have to buy and maintain to run this.

          Oh, AND they’re providing free trials when the games come out to make sure everyone can transfer for free. Let’s not forget that detail.

          If you don’t like the fee, don’t use the software. You’re missing out on absolutely nothing more than extra space. It’s that simple.

          • TheRece25

            My mind was not changed… waste of typing

          • Daniel Rojas

            Yeah, but Ranch, Stadium ..and PkmnBox(?) had always been paid once, and YOU had them in a save.. locally. Them being on the internet.. I don’t know. Like game servers being taken down over time. Thankfully Pokemon is way too big to end just like that..

            I see it as we at least get an option. The important thing is that there is a free trial to move all at once to X&Y and not lose anything.
            I wonder how they will allow transfer of old-pkmn after January.

          • Ghoster

            Even if the servers were to be taken down and the service ended they would give us fair warnig first as with the dreamworld…

          • Daniel Rojas

            That would be the nice thing to do 🙂
            But yeah, something that transfer ALL those pokes faster than before is welcomed. So I guess all is fine.

          • TCMets

            Nintendo still has servers from dead unpopular DS games from 2005 live

        • Mark James Colgan

          Don’t be a scrooge.
          Oh and you dont have to use it…

        • Ghoster

          But that’s idiotic, and he explained it, it’s a service that requires maintenance and people to manage it, I don’t like it very much but it’s completely rational. And I will be happy to pay as it supports pokemon. And you don’t have to aquire it if you don’t wanna.

          • TheRece25

            What’s’ idiotic…. You said you didn’t like it either, which is no different than what I said so what you said is idiotic… I couldn’t read the maintenance part due to server issues… but calm down if you are going to reply to me
            I understand to a degree now, but I can’t say it is a must, they have So much money already

          • Ghoster

            I said I didn’t like it because I was expecting a fee in the range of 10€ and appenrently it’s much less so I’m perfectly ok.

          • Adrian Marceau

            True. Additionally, if a company having lots of money meant they had to start giving their services away for free… then how would they pay their employees? I’m pretty sure people aren’t going to volunteer for free, and eventually that money will run out if they don’t charge for services, so it makes perfect sense. And I agree – I was expecting it to be a bigger price but $5 a year is very, very affordable and reasonable.

          • Ghoster

            Oh and also when I said it was idiotic you misunderstood me, I wasn’t talking about your opinion but rather the fact that you said your mind wouldn’t change, because it was almost like saying: Don’t even bother replying. And also because that’s saying that you have already decided without all of the facts.

    • ShinyXatu

      It’ll probably be a dollar per month or something.

      • Milotic4Ever

        $5 a year.

      • Ghoster

        They said it would be annual, but yes they could have monthly option too I guess

        • Adrian Marceau

          That means you’d be paying about $0.42 a month (save for any kind of inflation), so I think the $5 a year thing is a kind of “sweet spot” for pricing. When I first heard it, I was a little put off, but honestly the only people who would need it are those who have massive collections and want to import their creatures from previous generations – not the majority and while we never had to pay for it before, the idea of having the creatures I raise next month available for years and years to come in future Pokemon games is definitely worth the $5/year price. In my opinion anyway. 😛

          • Ghoster

            I’m going to get it either way because I prefer to have them all safely in the cloud, I have friend that lost a ton of pokemon because of his dog that decided to eat is platinum cartridge

          • Adrian Marceau

            Oh, well that’s no fun! I lost all my Pokemon once, but it was the same time as everyone else – from Gold/Silver and Ruby/Sapphire. Very sad – I had sooooo many memories with my Red/Blue/Gold/Silver Pokemon! Even just seeing their nicknames would bring back memories in the same way a journal would for me. It’s a great feeling. Luckily, I’ve been able to transfer all my Pokemon since, so I have plenty of Pokemon in my Black/White/2 from Gen 3 onwards. Still have my Sceptile from Sapphire over 7 years ago! Really cool. 🙂 I especially like the little flavour text the game adds for transferred Pokemon – very neat.

    • themonster6893

      Are you honestly saying you don’t have $5 that is just sitting around?

      • TheRece25

        . . . You apparently will never understand my side, no need for me to really answer you

        • Ghoster

          ???

        • Adrian Marceau

          And yet you answer anyway… Your side is an opinion – you are allowed to have it – but so is everyone else. 😛

          It’s an additional, optional, online service that requires you “renting” space on their servers. $5 a year is more than reasonable and if you don’t want to pay it you don’t have to, so… You’re being childish and irrational. Sorry.

          • TheRece25

            That was not an answer.. and you did not read around to see what else I said.. which was childish and irrational of you, don’t say anything to me if you can’t look around a lil first =]

          • Adrian Marceau

            I did look around. You’ve been whining in reply to everyone’s comment and saying things like “no need for me to answer you” and “waste of typing” to people who responded politely. Your type is bad for the community, so please do not be a jerk.

          • TheRece25

            You are scum, you look at words but do not know their meaning, how old are you? You call me a jerk when all the jerkiness is coming from you and the people who ganged up on me for voicing my opinion and getting mad at me when my thoughts did not change. Yes it was a waste of typing when I said my opinion would not waver. No there was no need for me to answer when I already did before showing it was not about the amount of money. You need grow up and learn to see the answer does not always lie within the masses opinion but sometimes you need full context to understand something. Yu make the Pokémon community look bad when you rush to conclusion like So many do here. I said what I did as politely as I could and I couldn’t care less your view of me after. If that last part sounds rude, then ok, you got rude with me first
            GoodDay! =]

          • Brandon G.

            I’m really sorry you have had the inconvenience to be insulted by this guy. I unfortunately had the same problem yesterday, where as I posted on one article that I didn’t want the evolutions to Kalos’ starters revealed until after release. Someone else replied to it, and then he replied to that reply disagreeing with my opinion, and was, as I quote, “butthurt” that my opinion was different than his. Although, it appears that he has taken this conversation a lot farther with you than me. I sincerely do feel you, though, and even though I do not know much about the work you do, I applaud you for being as honest as possible on the internet. 🙂

          • Adrian Marceau

            Thank you. I was really just trying to defend another commentor but it went too far. Now I remember why I typically avoid the “community” aspect of Pokemon. 🙁

          • Brandon G.

            You’re welcome. 🙂 I read the whole conversation, and it’s no one fault but his, really. Yes, you replied to defend the other commentor, but insults weren’t thrown until he stepped in. You’re at no blame, here. 🙂

          • Chicolombia

            Yeah, but this place has a great community! Keep being a part of it! Some people just don’t know how to appreciate…

          • TheRece25

            No one even agreed with you, you were wrong just as these two. seems you are still butthurt

          • Brandon G.

            You sir, are not worth anyone’s time.

          • TheRece25

            Back at you *10.. subtract the Sir part =]

          • Anonymous
          • Brandon G.

            Ha! 😀

          • Adrian Marceau

            Look over this entire comment page and count the number of times YOU whined about the price in reply to someone else’s comment, AND you made a new post about how much you hate it and tell anyone who disagrees with you that they are wrong. Plus you go around saying rude things to others
            who take the time to reply (like “mind not changed, waste of typing”) which is very immature. I mean look at your downvotes – clearly I’m not the only person who is annoyed by your attitude. Our community does not need negative people like you, so please keep your self in check. Thank you.

          • TheRece25

            Ok now I am going to tell you STFU.. and I stated my view 1 Time! then when people commented telling me I should change my mind I said No.. they brought it up repeatedly .. not me.. Get out of my face and leave it alone. You are not smart enough to win. Up vote me or down vote, I don’t care. I can see through your mess easily, your nowhere near as smart as you want others to believe

          • Adrian Marceau

            It’s okay if you think am not smart. I and everyone who knows me in real life and those who play my online game that I programmed and my boss who consistently thanks me for all the work i do and my co-workers who love how much i help them out and everyone else who isn’t YOU knows the truth, but you can think whatever you want. And yes, I did downvote you again. STFU is another example of the negative attitude the Pokemon community does not need – go play Halo is you wanna be a dick.

          • TheRece25

            Wow haha, great reply… I don’t know any of those people, for all I know they could be made up, all I know if the way you presented yourself to Me! like an ass…

          • Adrian Marceau

            Well I’m using my real name so look it up if you don’t believe me. I’m a 26 year old web developer with my own art website and my own online Mega Man RPG. Both are real, both were programmed by me, and both are provable by simply searching my name in Google. My LinkedIn also publicly states where I’m currently employed and I have plenty of endorsements from others on the quality of my work. I am presenting myself as honestly as a possible and I a, not lying about anything.

            You hide behind a username, so I obviously can not research your history (though, why would I need to?) but I imagine you are much younger than me else you would be a lot more civilized.

            Also, you posted a PUBLIC comment on a very popular, PUBLIC Pokémon website. Did you not expect people to reply? Because that’s kind of how the system works. To post a comment (that you know is unpopular) and then getting upset when people reply to you? That’s just silly. You post your opinion and other people post their replies – not sure why that is a problem. Are you the only one allowed to have an opinion, or perhaps you think that your opinion is more “right” then ours so we are not allowed to reply? Please enlighten me.

            Also, please do not resort to name-calling. I said you were BEING childish and/or immature. I never said you were scum, called you faggot, or threw out any personal attacks – I only commented on the behaviour you were presenting.

          • TheRece25

            Im not reading that or Anything you have to say, get a brain, get smart.. =]

          • Ghoster

            I’m really sorry to say it but really both me and Adrian have been far too polite for someone with a beahvior as yours. Say what you please as I won’t bother replying any more, and I think Adrian as been far to kind as to apologise after all your tantrum. Once again sorry for any bother and try to die quickly, I have been far to benevolent twoards you…

          • TheRece25

            The feeling is mutual. I much rather handle low life people as yourself face to face. The internet is no place for this. Gives weaklings like you two, Way too much confidence.. try stepping offline for a little while. Learn you are Only on a Pokémon site, and in REAL life.. you are not always right, therefore people Will Not always agree with you. it is as plain as that. But you have learned people will always be backed up on things that the majority stand for. In this case being a True game Freak.. lol.. People who will immediately Love all that is Pokémon and talk down to people who don’t. I am fine. I put you Both in your place the best I could online.. once again offline would be Much Better. Bye =] you will get no more replies from me because I already laid Everything down as it is and that’s final, you can go for the last word if you want.. means nothing 😉

          • Adrian Marceau

            You know what, I am sorry. I got upset after I read your “waste of typing” comment to someone else and signed in to downvote you. This has clearly gone too far and I’m sorry for starting what is essentially a flame-war. Everyone should be allowed to have an opinion, and I don’t just mean you – I mean EVERYONE. You were clearly rude and shouldn’t have been, but I was clearly going too far by replying as much as I did. I’m sure if this is the way you talk to people you would have more problems then just Pokemon commenters, but that’s none of my business. Apologies to all!

          • Ghoster

            I’m truly sorry but with a the comments you’re writing I at least can’t see how he’s the one being childish, irrational, etc. You really seem to be going a little overboard, and I can say that at least I wasn’t trying to changed your mind when I commented regarding what you said I was simply trying to voice the opinion of others and make understand my and others view, I’m sorry if my comment among others upset you, but you’re really going mental now.

          • TheRece25

            Don’t comment on my post ever again, you are just like Adrian and seem to not be able to piece things together well. Plus.. if you just want to help someone see another side of view.. Don’t Start by insulting the persons view As You Did Before ! Especially when you had the SAME VIEW but for different reasons.. lol how crazy. And Don’t become upset when someone puts you in your place for doing it. I am simply typing, no emotion behind it, just saying what needs to be said to some of you crazy die hard fans who will accept Anything Nintendo or GF throws your way then outcast Anyone who disagrees and then try making them feel bad for viewing things a different way, Which Is All You and Others Have Managed To Do! But once again I am Great with putting people Back in their place where they belong.

          • Ghoster

            You know I really tried to be polite and can’t see what I have done to get such a reaction, I’d be thankfull if you’d be able to point out exactly what did I say to make you react that away, but for as much at it might be insulting to say, you’re definetly going ranpant, sorry.

    • TCMets

      Pays $40 for the game, what’s another $5? I have no problem with this, I’m just happy I can bring my Sceptile to Y version and play on Pokemon Amie 🙂

  • MacSkiddo

    Im so happy we get two starters so i get Kill my rival much faster with my baublsaur >:D

    • DDD

      i wonder if your rival gets one two? or maybe thats how the fat guy and the red head guy get one?

      • MacSkiddo

        well i still got two starter types inside of one

  • 97gerome

    Gen 6 starter, Torchic and Bulbasaur/Squirtle/Charmander… Starters frenzy! xD

  • fl0

    I thought we’d be getting Kanto starters a bit later in the game, now I have a real dillema, cause I wanted to pick Chespin, but the Bulbasaur family are my favourite Pokemon!

    • TheRece25

      It didn’t show when we get them

      • MacSkiddo

        he says pick a other pokemon to take to u

        • TheRece25

          So? Doesn’t mean anything time wise

          • MacSkiddo

            so why would u tell u to take a other pokemon with u if ur really not going back to ur home town

          • DDD

            he wouldn’t say take another pokemon, unless you only had 1.

          • TheRece25

            Once again failing to see the point… We are talking about Time. WHEN does he give you the Pokémon. This has yet to be revealed. Of course he gives you the first Poke but that does Nothing for the issue of TIME…

      • DDD

        we get it at sycamore’s mansion after route 1.

  • Reece

    I wonder what stat increase M.Blastoise gets…..cause otherwise it’s not fair

    • DDD

      im guessing sp attack and defense

  • TCMets

    Transfer! :’)

  • TheRece25

    Doesn’t this confirm some past rumor? It sound all familiar. . .

    • Daniel Rojas

      Which rumors?

      • zobat78

        U being given Bulbasaur/Squirtle/Charmander
        On a later note…the trademarks Pokemon listed hinted to these 3 fully evolved pokemons to have mega evolutions

    • DDD

      your right. on pokébeach

  • vincentk

    i am really 50-50 on the poke transfer thing, although cool you can finally see which pokemon was legit or not it kinda ruins ones that are. Example the 10 year anniversary pikachu that knows fly,say you have it sitting there in you leaf gren, you want to trade it over to pearl you have to remove fly(no hm moves) kinda ruining its specialness, but you do it thinking you can have it relearned no sweat,turns out you cant without using a cheating device which ruins its legitimacy a little bit. now lets take it another step you want to trade it to white/white2 you got to do the same thing again, thats twice it had to learn fly again through some cheating device even though it originally knew it. Now here comes X and Y, is it gonna stop that pikachu from transfering because it doesnt know it was originally an event pikachu( the pikachu is not in a cherish ball as that wasnt introduce to later generation), thats kinda unfair considering it is real just the only way to keep it’s specialness was through the use of another device, what do you think do you guys have that special pikachu? sorry if i went a little too deep in this thinking i just had a thought and i needed to say it cause i dont think gamefreak thought this one through lol.

      That also reminds me that I have 2 copies of the games and I get the event Pokes in both but I only pick one set. The other I leave with the guy on the Pkmn Center so I can reset someday until I get something I want.. I’ll have to pick them before the trial ends or I won’t pass them over 🙁 Stupid paid services. At least.. it is not that expensive.

      Oh well.. I sure hope they allow for event pokes to be passed from old old games somehow.

    • johnboy

      the only solution i can think of is remove fly and trade it all the way up to x and y and then use a device(not sure if there is an action replay for the 3ds) to teach it fly again, but like you said it loses its legitmacy and it not being in a special pokeball makes it seem even more fishy when people see it then it gets banned from tournaments even though it is real. Good point your right,i am not sure how gamefreak gonna deal with that one lol

      • RoaringEcho

        There is a 3DS Action Replay.

  • Captain Combusken

    I really love how simple and easy these Mega Evos are! They’re a lot less complicated and intricate than a lot of the other Mega Evos. Good job in keeping the classics plain, Gamefreak. That’s a great way to keep people happy.

    I like Mega Charizard and Mega Blastoise the best as far as design is concerned. In-battle, Charizard is clearly ridiculously OP, although he kinda needed to be in a way. With his awful typing in the Metagame, having Drought is his saving grace. Venusaur also gets a very handy ability in Thick Fat. Blastoise I am a little disappointed at, maybe it will include Hydro Pump and other traditional Blastoise moves?

  • Captain Combusken

    Sudden other idea!

    Ash to Mega Evolve Charziard?

    • DDD

      for sure. he will probs bring it to kalos. im also calling him getting chespin

    Pokemon bank thing is confrimed to be 5$ a year. which is nothing so everybody chill.

    • Daniel Rojas

      Question is.. Will international countries that have never received support from Nintendo be part of this?

      • Ghoster

        It’s online, you just need an internet connection, I might be misunderstanding the question but literally a internet connection is all you need…

        • Daniel Rojas

          Well, for example. With the release of Wii U and Network Services.. if you create your account linked to your console location (in my case, Costa Rica), then you get a message saying something like “eShop is not available in your country”.

          So, if they make this accesible with a Nintendo Account (club Nintendo, which I can’t have either), then we get no access.

          • Ghoster

            Well from what I understand it’s an app downloaded from the eshop in the 3ds.

        • Daniel Rojas

          Let’s hope they don’t restrict it.. they have a record for wanting money.. but not from ALL countries 🙂

  • Ghoster

    If you see the Pokemon direct, not the resumed video, or rather I haven’t seen the resumed video so I don’t know, but in the direct there’s a seen where Xavier is talking to a old men on the beach, and it ight be just me or is his hair different?!

    • Milotic4Ever

      I thought he had on a different hat.

      • Ghoster

        I think the hat is the same red one but if you compare it with other images of him from the side I’m pretty sure you’ll see some difference, I might be wrong.

      • Ghoster

        See this images, the first from a trailer some time ago, and the other from todays direct.

          I noticed that too! Hair definitely seemed shorter – maybe we’ll be able to get haircuts? I sure hope so – do not like long hair on my boy characters… 😐

          • Ghoster

            Glad you noticed I only now clicked the links and saw how small they’re, so ill put them this way.

          • Adrian Marceau

            Much better image quality, thank you. I think it’s basically confirmed we can get haircuts now. Yay! 😀

          • Ghoster

            Yeah because before people were arguing that it was stupid to say we were gonna have different aircuts because the only ‘proof’ was that a npc rival had a different airstyle from the character when being playd, but now here’s the proof, muhahahah.

        • Milotic4Ever

          They’re tiny >_<

          • Ghoster

            Yeah but there should be bigger ones, I only noticed when someone else pointed it out, and I replyed with bigger ones, they should be around some where

  • Deoxys911

    I must admit, I’m a little disappointed. I did appreciate the transferring from Gen. V and the Mega Evolutions, but the fact that they will be having service fees for the Pokémon Bank and the lack of change in Blastoise and especially Charizard’s typings really brought it down for me. Also no gold XL anouncement and lack of much general game news. However, the good news is that Mega Venusaur and Mega Charizard have great new abilities, I like the three new Mega designs, and that we can now transfer Pokémon to different games much more quickly than trading one at a time! On top of that I notice that the special 3DS XLs don’t come with the games, so perhaps closer to the holidays the gold one will see release after all, with that one coming with one of the games. If that doesn’t happen, I’m glad we got the red one, at least, I like it too.

    • DDD

      5$ a year…

      • Deoxys911

        I know it isn’t too unreasonable, and I understand why it would really help them maintain it, but anytime I see more fees and such added onto games it disappoints me a little.

  • DDD

    and yet another thing of this leak is confirmed. i am now believing in this leak. i mean this is extremely accurate.

    http://pokebeach.com/2013/06/pokebeach-x-y-rumor-roundup-and-clarifications

    • Sable

      Even turns out that Sycamore DOES give us the Kanto starters. Which is the part we were thinking was mixed up.

    • TheRece25

      That’s the one I was talking about! Dedenne will be So strong! Yay! =]

    • zobat78

      Too bad u didn’t believe it right from the start…
      I did and now ima happy as a Skiddo (cause it looks so happy and cute)!
      It’s the only rumor that i believed in right from the start for some odd reason…

    • Bob

      Except the parts about Professor Patrice and Psychic not resisting Fairy.

      • Captain Combusken

        Fairy could easily have changed a little since WPM’s leaker played the game- he played a beta version after all. It’s likely that Fairy was changed after that.

        Professor Patrice may still turn out to be real, you never know. Possibly like Sycamore’s aide, who happens to also be a professor?

        It may also be that Patrice is no longer a professor, or that he’s since been removed, like Fairy and Psychic’s relationship.

        The one I’m unsure about is Mewtwo’s two forms. Unless if he got a little confused and the second Mewtwo form is actually a Mew Mega evolution.

  • Pokefan

    So what starters will you gonna have?
    I think I’m going with all the fire type starters: Charmander, Torchic and Fennekin. Maybe I’m gonna pick Squirtle only to break the monotony, but I really like Charizard! I don’t know what to do! I have one month to decide!!!

    • kaiyasuma1

      i guess that’s how we’ll both end up starting our journeys, with the fire types.

  • Buoy

    My question is: when are we getting the Kanto starters? I really hope it’s in the beginning of the journey, not after we beat the Elite 4 or something…

    • DDD

      after route 1. in sycamore’s house.

      • Buoy

        Really? That’s pretty good news! Now we have to decide on a pair of starters!

        • TheRece25

          He doesn’t know

          • DDD

            yes i do. he said in the trailer that it would be better if u had more than one. what point in the game do you have only 1 pokemon besides route 1? and the mansion just north of your hometown is where he resides in the trialers. Therefor it is safe to assume that that is where you get the kanto staters 🙂

          • Felipe Pio

            I guess we get them in Lumiose City at worst, but I agree with your opinion about Sycamore Mansion.

    • TheRece25

      Not yet known..

  • Ben

    Not gonna lie, I was expecting a bit more. STILL, this is really awesome. It’ll definitely tide me over until Corocoro.

  • TheRece25

    Confirmed ALL Starters get Mega Evos

  • A.T

    Humm, I LOVE the design of Mega Charizard, Mega Blastoise is ok, and Mega Venausaur… I struggled to see the difference. However I think the biggest drawback is the fact they all maintain their types…big let down. It was the perfect opportunity to make Charizard a beast :/
    Still, it’s hinting at all starters receiving mega’s which is cool!

  • TCMets

    Hello there mysterious Pokemon that was shown briefly in the anime trailer at the airport:

    • TheRece25

      Looks fake

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        It’s real.

        • TheRece25

          Yeah I saw a pixilated version first

          • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

            Okay.

    • Sable

      Where did you find this image? *I don’t see a shadow, so it does seem suspect*

      • TCMets

        Serebii

        • TheRece25

          Serebii forums or front page?.. big dif. I can’t even get on serebii right now

          • TCMets

            Serebii announced it on Twitter. And now it’s on the front page.

          • DDD

            serebii front page

        • Sable

          Hm. Well, it DOES resemble that random white thing. And it was the front page. It also looks like an Absol with a bad hair day.

          • TCMets

            Hahaha, Absol bad hair day xD

          • Sable

            note, I do not think it’s related to Absol, it looks to be about the same size, so that looks too big for a prevolution, it looks like it has hooves, plus the longer back legs.

    • DDD

      lol its emo Kuzco

      • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

        I’m going to nickname it that now. No kidding.

    • Buoy

      A llama Pokémon, maybe?

    • themonster6893

      Hmmmmmm thought it might be fake, but me now wonder about this…..

      • TCMets

        It appears at 15:16 for literally a couple of frames and you’ll have to keep pausing to catch it. – Pokebeach

        • themonster6893

          Ya I found it right after i posted haha

    • Kyle Kottenbrook

      swirlix evo fairy/dark anyone?

      • 97gerome

        If it was fairy/dark and Swirlix’s evo… Then Swirlix’s counterpart, Spritzee, might be a fairy/dark Plague doctor! Soooo cool xD (Hey, a guy can wish hahaha)

        • Ariana

          Spritzee is indeed based on a Plague doctor. It will definitely evolve into a taller, more humanoid Plague doctor. It’ll most likely remain Fairy as its sole type.

          Swirlix is based off Cotton Candy, In Australia they call cotton candy “Fairy Floss” which is how swirlix got its inspiration and typing. There is a type of fairy floss sold in australia that if you chew it, it turns into bubble gum. My thoughts is that Swirlix will evolve into a round/hard/bubble gum Fairy Pokemon.

      • GLITCH’D

        I don’t think it would be a swirling evo given how swirlix is completely pink and this pokemon has no traces of pink on it. Swirlix is also more puffy and cloud-like where’s this pokemon is just furry. It looks like a stand-alone to me

    • belmad

      OMG, It was really on the trailer and we missed that!

      • Skiddo

        When I first saw it I thought it was Mega Absol

    • Miniryu-Ninja

      You know it may be too big but it has some similarities with absol…colouring for one- you never know it could be a pre-evo?

      • TheRece25

        I hope for this, absol… looks too close to it though it could be another of those Pokes that look related but are not

        • Dubb

          Lol yea like luvdisc and alomomola

        • Zack Phoenix

          I think this is a new Alpacca-Pokémon. No similarities to Absol seen. The amount of detail is the same as on Absol so it can’t be a pre-evo, also the fur is completely different, more fuzzy.

      • Daniel Rojas

        🙁 I’d be sad if we start getting pre-evos again.. They don’t much except for the collect and cute factors.

        • Miniryu-Ninja

          I would rather it wasn’t and i’m beginning to think it isn’t an absol pre-evolution but i’m pretty sure we will get some… every gen since 2 has had at least 1 or 2 (5th gen being the exception but that was the exception to a lot of things) and since we know were getting evolutions of older pokemon it stands to reason that we may see 1 or 2 pre-evo’s…personally i’m hoping for a shared pre-evo for both tauros and miltank.

          • Daniel Rojas

            I could definitely see that one happening! That and I’ve always wanted Kangashkan’s kid.. but that’s unlikely.

    • Either a Swirlix Evo or Absol pre-evo. Remember the X&Y anime trailer – a trainer had a white four-legged Pokemon standing by him. This is it.

      • GLITCH’D

        It looks way too tall for an Absol prevo, plus the colouring is a bit off. Also, given it looks like a llama, I don’t think it has much in common with Absol at all. I honestly just think this could be a new, stand-alone pokemon.

        • moving

          I’m not sure if it has been posted here, but Masuda tweeted a photo of himself with a llama. Given his usual reputation it wouldn’t surprise me if this is a llama Pokémon.

          • GLITCH’D

            I desperately want this llama to be rideable. Also, give it an ability that doubles the power of Spit Up :p

          • Ghoster

            Oh yes thinking of it I saw it but didn’t think much of it then… checky bugger teasing us… they’re trying to out smart us.

          • EGG

            Jordin, may I ask, how do you do these “digital” grid round-square thingies in your avatars?

          • Jordin

            From a picture. This is “my style” different people have different styles in making icons, banners, etc. I just experimented with many different styles and this one was my favorite. If you probably have seen my earlier avatars they were different because I was still experimenting. (:

          • EGG

            Awesome. But, I mean, is there a tool on photoshop or whatever to do that grid? I wanted to do something similar for my tumblr background 🙂

        Its Akamaru 😀

    • Prince Azulon

      Could it evolve into some type of Gryphon? I hope so.

    • Prince Azulon

      Very simple design. Great color and above all very good design. None of the features are over-done which I think is GREAT considering the fact that most people are wanting more of the epic-ness ever since the designs for Blaziken, Lucario came out.

    • Mathematical.

      I’m pretty sure that’s a griffin, the mythological bird-lion-thing.
      Oh, and to the mods, this isn’t an alternate account. Disqus deleted my old account for some reason.

      • Sazando

        I think you mean Hippogriff. Looks more like a hippogriff to me.

        • Ariana

          If Gamefreak were to ever make a Hippogriff/Griffin Pokemon, it will definitely be a legendary and not some basic thing.

        • Mathematical.

          I thought they were the same thing! Thanks for clearing that up for me.

      • 23Skiddsy

        It looks more like a mammal than anything to me. Some kind of goat or camelid (llama/alpaca/guanaco/vicuna)

  • Hyu

    New Pokemon

    • ShinyXatu

      Oh yes, that’s right! It’s a perfect match! I just wonder what it could be.

    • belmad

      What do those ears mean? Why it has puffy hair? Where the hell its actual face? Will those questions find an answer?

  • MacSkiddo

    i like the llama pokemon but i really hope X and Y story is not all about megas and to be honest megas are kinda taking my hype away since it taking away from the wonderful pokemon we can meet

  • Miniryu-Ninja

    Took me like 100 pauses to get it but finally managed to pause at the right moment. Yeah it looks pretty cool- around the 15.15 minute mark and literally a flash for less than a second- unless you pause at the exact moment you just do not see it lol Sneaky Nintendo!

        Yes they lazily SET UP a battle between Venusaur and new pokemon to put in the footage because they are so lazy they didn’t think anyone would see it -.-

        • dfdf

          i love how lazy they were when they created 3 models for all of the 700+ pokemon

    well i can say it if it a llama pokemon it has to have spit attack

      swallow and spit up

      Thanks! I was hoping it wasn’t just me because it was saying Internal Server Error.

  • ShinyXatu

    I think I will pick Froakie and Bulbasaur for my playthrough of Pokemon X, so I can inflict status moves as well as attack physically! Plus, I’ve never used Bulbasaur before in my life, and this generation is meant for new things.

    • MacSkiddo

      cool im picking Fenniken and Balbasaur so when my rival picks froakie i have grass type already

  • TheRece25

    So this means dual type moves likely confirmed…. So much changing. wow. That would, in a way give us more than 4 moves per Pokémon in a sense that is, cool if it is true

      I think it will work in a similar way Psyshock works.

      For example: an attack being Grass-type, getting STAB from Grass-type Pokémon, but dealing and applying weaknesses and resistances of Poison-type damage instead of Grass… get it?

    • Similarity

      How, exactly, does this at all confirm dual-type moves?

      • TheRece25

        I will let You specifically find out for yourself ;]

      • DarkYami

        I believe he means because this confirmed yet another aspect of the PokeBeach leak, which stated there would be dual-type attacks. However, seeing as he also claimed Mewtwo had two of (what we now know to be) Mega Evolutions, he’s not entirely in the clear just yet. Unless Mewtwo’s supposed ‘second form’ is MegaMew, as some speculate.

        • Similarity

          It also said that Professor Sycamore’s first name would be Patrice and that Mewtwo would have two forms, both of which are untrue. That particular batch of rumors can’t be completely trusted.

          • Felipe Pio

            Maybe his name is Patrice Sycamore?

          • PercyEspeon

            It’s Augustine Sycamore. And the rumors said ‘ANOTHER professor named Sycamore’

          • Felipe Pio

            True, forgot about that!

  • Javi Wonka ツ

    I think that Pokémon Bank will need a fee for avoiding people from creating multiple accounts. Imagine people creating Bank accounts with no sense. This guarantees the good performance and health of the Bank servers. It is just my opinion, because I don’t think Nintendo would learn a lot of money from 500yen/yr fees

    Mfw this Llama/Alpaca Pokemon is number 666 in the Pokedex.

  • Ariel

    Fennekin, Chespin, Froakie, Charmander, Bulbasaur and Squirtle. I guess you pick two, and the remaining 4 starters go to your rivals/friends?

  • Commander A.Cheez

    MegaCharizard’s face looks like Aerodactyl’s face.

    The moves which the megas are using are Hydro Cannon, Frenzy plant and Blast burn.

    Paying $5 a year for a service that allows you to hold up to 3000 different Pokemon, with an easy search system that ALSO allows mutli-generational transfer… I don’t see why some people are so butthurt over this, I think it’s awesome!

    I <3 Mega Blastoise

    • Kriffix

      Same at both things!

      • Diamond

        that’s right! not only it lets you to save your pokemon so, if you lose your game, you don’t lose all your pokemon, but with this system you can finally restart your game everytime you want without losing your pokemon as you can save them online!

        but people complain because it was free before… without giving specific details, there are other companies now that are charging for things that were free before and anyone is complaining about it…

    • Deoxys911

      I would say the hurt probably mostly comes from people just not liking that they buy a $200 handheld and a $40 game for it and then have to pay $5 a year on top of that for a fairly simple companion app. Put simply, people just don’t like to pay more money than they have to. Also, the fact that they don’t like that they have to pay for it may have something to do with how we’re spoiled with all of the free cloud services offered anymore by companies like Google and Apple.

    • Daniel Rojas

      The fact that let’s you move BOXES of pokemon in minutes is a definite plus.

    • 23Skiddsy

      Don’t forget it’s free for a month, so if you want to transfer everything in the first month, it’s not problem!

  • nb97

    This guy looks like a poodle. If you try to zoom to it’s face you can see the balck dot which is the nose. This is a poodle for sure if you ask me.

  • Ultron

    I love these megaevolutions!! At first I didn’t really like megacharizard, but then I saw the official artwork and my mind changed real quick. I can’t decide if I like megacharizard or megablastoise better. I think I would go with megablastoise because it looks like a tank and I love it’s little wrist launcher cannons! And quick question, say you pay the $5 and transfer your pokemon over to the bank. What happens to your pokemon when the year is up and you don’t renew your bank account? I’m going to guess they are just suspended and you can’t access them until you pay another $5. I don’t think gamefreak would delete people’s pokemon if their membership thing expired.

  • TCMets

    Wait a minute, a Red and a Blue Pokemon Special Edition 3DS XL? Look more like Ruby and Sapphire. HOENN CONFIRMED!

  • Felipe Pio

    Well, seems like I will have Chespin, Squirtle and Torchic on my team =D But I feel kinda guilty not using a full-Gen6 team… There’s still time to think about that though.

  • jigglypuff

    $5 is extremly cheap than last gens method of having to buy another all new 3ds or ds, but i guess at that point everyone and their mother already had both systems lol, either way 5 dollars for a year is cheap. Just skip out on one thing you buy everyday that you really don’t need (ie: starbucks, candy, etc.) for like a day or two… BAM $5 right there.

  • regidudeam

    Even though Bulbasaur line are my favorite kanto starter…..DAT MEGABLASTOISE…LOOKS AMAZING!!!!

  • King Phoenix

    This should hold conversation till corocoro 🙂

    • Sable

      I dunno, we devour new information rapidly and it’s quickly extremely old, at least for some of us. Btw, is corocoro back to it’s usual release date at about the 12-15th or something this month, or is it another early one. Because if it’s early, we COULD have something during the weekend.

      • King Phoenix

        Im almost positive itll be anywhere from the 7th-12th

        • Sable

          Sure hope so. I’m content with this information for right now, but Fairy Type Chart is coming with this Corocoro, so right now that’s the news I’m waiting for.

      • TheRece25

        Exactly, I’m already thinking about Gen 7 XD

    • EliteTrainerXeos

      Who’s not to say these won’t be featured in CoroCoro?

    • PercyEspeon

      It’ll hold my impatientness until……
      Now.
      WHERE IS MY OTHER INFO?!?!?! GRAAAHHHH!
      Nah, I kid. I’m satisfied until CoroCoro.

  • regidudeam

    Froakie and Bulbasaur for X,
    Chespin and Squirtle for Y,
    you guys?

    • TCMets

      Chespin and Charizard for Y.

      Froakie and Venusaur for X.

      Holy crap Venusaur is going to be such a tank.

      • Sable

        I keep seeing everyone go Chespin and Charizard for Y. Why is that? IM DOING THAT TOO! *though, I’m ONLY getting Y, and I wanted to start with Chespin, and… Well, Charizard is my standing favorite Starter, and my original starter, with Chespin having the potential to displace it, so it’s only natural.

        • TCMets

          Chespin is my favorite. And I love Charmander. Though I’m only choosing Charmander because I don’t know if we’re getting a Megastone just based on the starter we choose. And so just to be safe, I’m choosing Charmander. This is because I have a Shiny Charizard that I will transfer to become Mega Shiny Charizard 🙂

      • regidudeam

        Mega Venusaur can take Ice Beams and Flamethrowers all day…

        • TCMets

          And increased Defense and Special Defense!

          • regidudeam

            Bulbasaur and Squirtle are buddies in the anime.
            Froakie and Chespin should also be buddies

      Froakie, Bulbasaur and Torchic 😀

  • TheRece25

    Oh wait.. does this mean Easy access to All starters? You can just start over and chose a new one each time then send them to the cloud =]

    • regidudeam

      YES….maybe I don’t have to buy two versions now.

      • TheRece25

        Never to that just for starters, trade.. saves So Much money. Unless it is because you want your name next to your Pokémon

  • MegaLucario98

    character customization confirmed!

    • regidudeam

      but we already knew that

      • Jordin

        Yes, but it gives us further confirmation and that you can change hair styles.

      • MegaLucario98

        i know, but i wanted to share with you this video to completely confirm the character customization!

    • Jordin

      And they actually blink!

    • It’s been confirmed. Ever since April!

      • MegaLucario98

        i just further confirmed this.

    • Ghoster

      :'( Almost no one noticed the images I posted about this five hours ago…
      *sad face*
      Just kidding I don’t mind, what matters is that the information is being transmited threw the masses.

  • Elcucuuy

    Has no one pointed out how Mega Evolutions will affect the anime? Ash just got his Charizard back not to long ago, sounds like a perfect opportunity

  • Jordin

    I think this means that Pokemon-Amie could be connected to Mega Evolution. Your bond with the Pokemon increases the Mega evolving ability so you don’t need a Mega stone! You could have plenty of time to increase your bond with battle, Pokemon-Amie, after traveling with you for a long time, etc. That’s why they used the Mega ring and not the Mega stone. That hidden Pokemon could be a Poodle it has the characteristics but it looks more Pokemon-like. It would make sense since the region is based on France and Poodles came from France and Germany. (+ I would love the idea because I have one in real life and I can act like it’s my real life dog xD)

    OK, am I the only one that thinks the new Pokemon kinda looks like it might be an evolutionary relative of Absol.

    • Ghoster

      Well given that our gender counterpart doesn’t have a hat it would be silly for us not to have the choice of taking it of and also, at least the glasses can be taken off, there are images of it I think at least.

      • Chicolombia

        I sure hope so! X/

  • Pokemon finally stopped hacked and cheated Pokemon! Pokemon with fake abilities (a ability that the Pokemon cannot get natural), Hacked Moves, etc. cannot be sent with PokeTransfer! Now Nintendo + Pokemon finally put a stop to cheating! ;D

    • regidudeam

      YES…I can finally play on wi-fi.

      • Sable

        I do wonder what steps they will take to ensure hacking can’t take place within Gen VI itself. Obviously hacked Pokemon would be stuck on the cartridge, unable to go into the Bank, but I wonder if there will be measures to actually prevent them from even being created. Regardless, that is good, you have to have your high IV and perfectly trained Pokemon by actually doing it, not plugging in numbers.

    • TCMets

      You may find yourself unable to use Pokémon Bank or Poké Transporter to deposit any Pokémon created illegally by software unauthorized by The Pokémon Company and Nintendo into your online Boxes.

      Do you think that created part just means like Pokegen or something? I wonder if Action Replay Pokemon will be blocked as well. I’ve only ever used it to get the Manaphy egg because I don’t play Pokemon Ranger. And that’ll suck in completing my Pokedex in X and Y because I’ve used that one Manaphy for Pokedex data everywhere xD

      • Jordin

        Since it hatched from an egg I don’t think it is affected but there is a very slim chance of it being interpreted as illegal.

        BTW, Guess what day it is?

        • TCMets

          Well hopefully it gets through 😀 All I use it for is Dex data. If it doesn’t, I’ll just be asking on GTS or on forums lol.

      • thekingbrad

        yeah…maybe thats a reward for those who actually raise their pokemon like myself

        • Ghoster

          Yeah that’s good thinking, but it scares me, really does.

    • Dialasong

      The only Pokemon I’m really worried about is the shiny mew someone traded me over the GTS. There’s almost no way that thing isn’t hacked, unfortunately… it’s information seems like it could be legal, but the odds of my having received a legitimate shiny mew over GTS are highly unlikely. All I really wanted to do with it was pet it in Pokemon-Amie, too… ah well, I guess I’ll try to import it anyway when the time comes and if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. At least I do have a regular Mew that I got from an event, so I’ll be able to import that one.

      • Milotic4Ever

        I hope my Japanese Ditto is legit… o_0

      • Ghoster

        I’m really worried about this I hope it’s like: if you try to send a pokemon and it isn’t legit, you just can’t send it, no other reprocursions because I have some pokemons whos legitemecy I doubt that were traded to me by an aquaintence at a party, and also one or othe gts doubtfull trade and it scares me that there are any reprocursions.

    • Felipe Pio

      How will they know if a pokémon is hacked when its stats and attacks are legal?

      • Sable

        Maybe just something in the data identifies them as being generated by an outside source instead of in game. We will just have to see what they allow in and what they don’t allow in.

        • Ghoster

          Don’t take my word for it but in my understanding any pokemon that isn’t legit should also get noticed if you try to use it in online battles, I’m not sure but maybe you can try that

    So what happens when a mega pokemon switches out? Does it revert back to its normal form?

    • Sable

      We don’t know yet.

      • TheNintendoChip

        It would be so op if it does….

        • TheRece25

          You mean doesn’t?

          • TheNintendoChip

            We currently don’t know for sure, so I was saying it would be op IF it turns out that they do go back to their normal selves upon switching out

          • TheRece25

            Yeah but I figure you would have said the opposite

          • thekingbrad

            then that would mean their not op…

    • Felipe Pio

      Well, in order to Mega Evolve we have first to attack, so if you’re planning to throw in Charizard to the battle to activate Drought, you have to attack too and after that you may be allowed to switch back.

  • Sable

    Now that we have had some time to look at them, I’m going to kind of analyze some design details of these Mega Starters, just for fun.

    Well, first thing is that these guys don’t drastically alter as much as some of the Megas, at least in terms of color. I actually was kind of expecting more colors to be added… I guess subconsciously, I was kind of expecting them to take some details from the Clone Starters on them, with the darker stripes and blotches.

    Venusaur seems to take a more natural progression, with things getting bigger, like the flower now almost like a miniature jungle on his back. The flower on his forehead is a tad random, it fits in the terms he’s always had something cover his forehead, but why that leaf evidentially got trimmed and that grew, I don’t know. I’m also expecting bringing it down to be a challenge, it’ll it will just be able to take so many hits.

    Charizard… Did not do what I expected. I was among those somewhat anticipating the Fire/Dragon Mega evo. They didn’t, so that changed entirely the image I was expecting. What’s funny is it really did the exact OPPOSITE of what I was thinking. As I was thinking it was going to be a Dragon type, I was expecting his wings to diminish in importance, and probably gain more powerful looking arms… like Zekrom or Black Kyurem. Instead, they GAVE the wings more emphasis, being larger, and in general more impressive wings, further emphasizing it’s Flying type, and actually made the arms more simple and smaller…… Like Reshiram or White Kyurem. In fact, Mega Charizard’s wing arms look a LOT like White Kyurem’s arms. So, I think that means Charizard’s Mega Stone is the Light Stone, and he is in fact eating Reshiram for his giant power boost XD. The fact it has Drought though… This actually gives a level of strategic planning to him. Because, as he doesn’t activate drought when he comes into battle, but when you transform him, you can effectively use an infinite Sunny Day AND attack at the same time, while canceling out whatever weather was going on. Plus, instant Solarbeams.

    As for Mega Blastoise, I find it kind of funny they did what is probably the most common thing to do with a fake Blastoise evolution. Have one single giant cannon on it’s back. The Wrist Cannons, I wasn’t anticipating, and I actually thought it would be on all fours due to a giant cannon. It is appropriately hunched over though. In general, I do think that Blastoise probably got the best look out of the three, all the elements seem to mesh really well. It’s also gotten me thinking what we can expect out of the other Mega Starters… and what abilities they might get. Obviously they will not all be using their Dream World abilities, so there is a lot of potential in terms of gameplay, not just design. I think that at the least, Typhlosion will probably become more fiery, maybe even part of it’s design modifying that it’s flames are more akin to lava. It IS the Volcano Pokemon. Also, I have in the back of my mind of a majorly cruel joke…. Swampert….. With Sap Sipper. I CAN JUST SEE IT.

    • TheNintendoChip

      Dude, imagine using a solar power charizard (and assuming mega-pokemon change back to normal upon switching out), lead w/it, change to mega, drought effect, switch. No need for ninetales…(that is assuming your charizard survives and you have a rapid spinner)…
      And dat Sap Sipper Swampert (dat alliteration too)

  • OMG. My theory was right! Trevor and Tierno do not get the starters! They have already obtained there own before You, Calem/Serena, and Shauna! They highly have different Kalos Pokemon! Also, if you noticed you couldn’t battle them in the demo. Also, if you guys remember there was a rumor on PokeBeach that said Prof. Sycamore will give you the Kanto Starters. Now that is true! I will believe X & Y Rumors a bit more now! As you know Inkay, Malamar, and Pangoro were rumors too! ;D

    • TheRece25

      No you could battle them, Shauna had a starter

      • TheNintendoChip

        ^You cant battle Trevor/Tierno, the ones who don’t get the starters c:

        • Demi Gol

          Maybe, Tierno and Trevor will get the Kanto starters you don’t take.

          • I doubt it! In the image below, You, Calem/Serena, and Shauna are the only trainer there! You guys will get the Kanto Starters! Not Trevor and Tierno.

          • Ariana

            so this means my two main rivals in the games will both be females -_-

      • No. Not Shana and Calem/Serena. Tierno and Trevor.

        • TheRece25

          Shauna YES…. I saw it. Most people just timed out by the time they got to her

          • I just said you could battle her in the demo. I was talking about Trevor and Tierno. You cannot battle them.

          • TheRece25

            ummm, ok, guess I read it wrong

    • Samurott

      ohhh!!1 look the hair cut of the man!! his hair is blond :O cool

      • It’s a 12-13 year old kid! Not a man! XD Yea, I saw!

        • Samurott

          ahahahahahhh

    • PercyEspeon

      I totally agree with this! This made the most sense to me when I thought about this earlier (like before we knew).

    • Diamond

      i had a feeling something like this would happen, it’s basic math: 5 people and 3 starters, then 2 people don’t have an starter

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        I think I have a solution to that.
        Considering they’re with you when you go to Professor Sycamore, maybe he gives the other 2 one of the kanto starters.
        What do you guys think?

        • Diamond

          it could be an option, but as the character says in the picture, the two boys already have a pokemon.

        • Ariana

          I personally think the fat boy owns a Vanillite. (introduce us to its new Ice/Fairy typing). I mean the starting town is called Vaniville Town, and he has a Vanillite on his shirt.

    • Nate

      Now we’ll have to see if the “friendly rival” (Shauna) will give you her fully evolved starter at the end of X and Y…

      • Zack Phoenix

        I hope not. This doesnt make any sense. Why would you give away your pokemon / friend? Well maybe there is an important reason in the story but knowing pokemon’s stories there can’t really be anything too dramatic to justify that.

        • soccertrainer

          First of all hello to everyone, its nice to be part of this

          it does sound rather stupid but just hopefully this becomes the case. Although this wont be such a big problem since you can get all three starters by placing them in the pokebank.

    • Kooky

      Oh gosh afarr… 🙁

      They are=They’re
      not There DX

      Glad I could help 😛

      • Kooky

        Also There is not Their.

    • dewkage

      that’s awesome that you found this, but i don’t know if they will have different pokemon could be like B2/W2 where your rival already had there pokemon

    • mike85

      I have a question (sorry to hijack your comment Afarr lol) does anyone know if we cantrade from X to Y without using the Pokemon Bank system? I know it would seem like a no brainer but this is something of concern to me since I usually purchase both titles and trade to get all three Starters on each game.

      • Jordin

        I’m worried about that too. The apps are going to be released two months after the games release! That is a long time and then I can’t use my soon to be hatched shiny Mudkip for my playthrough of the game D:

        • mike85

          I know right! The Pokemon Direct said that you can deposit Pokemon into Pokemon Bank from Pokemon X, Y. And the picture shows you can transfer these Pokemon to either game. But is this the only way we have to transfer between X and Y? I’m hoping Not and that I’m just jumping ahead but it’s kind of a big deal.

          • Jordin

            There should be also for the people who don’t have money to buy a $20 E-shop card when there needs to be bills paid, etc. Right now this seems to be the only flaw I’m finding in X & Y 🙁 It is a very big issue!

          • Ariana

            For the people who don’t have money, there is a 30 Day free trial of using Pokemon Bank/Transporter.

            There is NO OTHER way of transporting your pokemon to X and Y from 5th gen games. The app will be the only method. It will be a measly 5 bucks-a-year to continue to own the app.

            You guys have to think. Not only can you store up to 3000 pokemon in this “cloud” service, but it also prevents hacked Pokemon from EVER entering 6th gen, and also gives you the ability to pick a starter, store it in bank, start the game over, pick a new starter, access bank, and claim all the starters that way.

          • Ariana

            Forgot to mention, the game will be able to trade from Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will be able to trade with other X and Y’s, but you will not be able to trade with 5th gen games until December.

          • mike85

            This is what I was referencing.

          • Jordin

            I’m not against it I have $40 in my E-Shop account ready to use Pokemon Bank for 8 years. I love the idea, I’m talking for all the people who can’t get the game until a later time or they can’t get E-Shop credits, etc.

          • mike85

            I’m just concerned if you can trade between X and Y without the Pokemon Bank (don’t want to wait until Jan), I’m on board with paying the 5 bucks for a year to have access to trading between X, Y and the 5th gen games.

          • mike85

            I doubt that there is any way around it either. and for those that can’t afford the 20 dollar cards there’s always X-Mas and Birthday money lol (I’m thinking those currently unemployed, unable to work or not old enough to have a job).

          • Jordin

            Exactly! The funny thing is that fake “leakers” were talking about an app for for the E-Shop that imports Pokemon. If fake “leakers” can make it up I think Game Freak could have thought of that, too. If they would have actually thought about it since the announcement and before the announcement of the game Pokemon Bank and Transporter maybe would have been released earlier..But who knows maybe they did?

          • mike85

            What if the “leakers” inspired Game Freak to make the Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transfer apps when they were still trying to find a ways to deal with transfers from the 5th to the 6th gen games. Probably not, and they had that idea way before though.

          • Ghoster

            No surely can trade normaly they’re just trying to say that if you several copies of the game you don’t need a pokebank for each but to trade you can surely trade, but with this you need only one nintendo to move pokemon between your games

          • mike85

            It’s the most likely scenario, I’m just being a bit paranoid. The reason I was freaking out is the I’m getting both games and plan on trading between them to get all Kalos and Kanto starters, so I didn’t want to wait until Jan to do that.

  • Samurott

    soo I need money to transfer all my pokemon of other games to x and y? 🙁 they dont give you a year free?

    • It’s a month free trial, however we don’t know if you have to pay first or something.

    • Naeem M.

      You get a free trail and it’s five dollars to pay for an entire year.

    • TCMets

      You get a month free, after that it’s a $5 yearly fee. Nothing. Already paying $40 for the game, what’s another $5?

      • RavenWindSirvi

        ikr, I have 4 games that I can use to upload into it and I have been breeding past starters too. I can’t wait till the 12th

    • RavenWindSirvi

      you get a month free so if you do it then you will not have to pay

    • At first, they give you a free trail! Then you have to pay! I don’t blame them saving a lot of older Pokemon is a lot! So, they need money to keep PokeBank running! $5 for the whole year! It’s not a lot!

      • Samurott

        yes okok!! I undestand thanks guys 😀 but I live in dominican republic here we dont have gameshop or something else i dont know how could we put the 5 dolars in the game

        • 3DS E-Shop Card.

          • Samurott

            but can i get it from internet?

          • I think so. Where do you buy your games?

          • Samurott

            from amazon

          • RavenWindSirvi

            walmart and many other online places sell the cards

          • RavenWindSirvi

            yes, also if you have a credit card you can add money to your 3ds

  • Naeem M.

    I think Poke Bank will be free one day if every pays for it who has the game and plus they might be using this for years to come.

  • Samurott

    with a free month i can put all my pokemon in x and y 😀

  • TCMets

    Gosh, 3,000 box space at the bank. That’s not nearly enough to hold all my Chespin babies! :O

    • Jordin

      They are preparing us for the real world! 😀

    • Samurott

      ahahahahahahah!! omg who isn thee world have 3000 pokemon?

      • Umm… Kawaii Girl.

        • Samurott

          ahahah good oone!!

        • Milotic4Ever

          Every Pokemon she encounters she will say, “KAWAIIIII!!!!!” then catches it.

      • Jordin

        Shiny hatchers!

  • Samurott

    I have a question: You cant battle Trevor/Tierno… thats true?D: Because fuck why our rivals are girls -.- ( girls you’re cool but we need a man as rival)

    • TCMets

      No, you battle them. You just couldn’t battle them in the Demo.

      • Milotic4Ever

        They might have Kalos-only pokemon as starters that we have not seen yet, so it’s a surprise!

        • TCMets

          Could be!

        • Maybe. Yet, it seems like you get the Kanto-Starters a bit later in the game! If you noticed only you, Serena, and Calem/Shauna were the only ones who came with you!

          • thekingbrad

            i dont think so

            Skip to about 0:16…it sounds like their implying that we will get them at the beginning

            Oh and the pokebeach rumors were right about Sycamore giving us the kanto starters

          • TCMets

            Hirobyte? Don’t you mean the Pokebeach rumors?

          • thekingbrad

            yeah my bad

          • Milotic4Ever

            His reaction was priceless.

      • Samurott

        ohhh thanks 😀

    • RavenWindSirvi

      you have a rival that is your opp gender

      • Samurott

        if you choose the male you’ll get 2 rivals famale

        • RavenWindSirvi

          I guess that is true, I will be choosing the female so I get both

    • No. In the Demo you cannot battle them. Read my comment below because I explain it! You can’t battle them in the demo because they have there own Pokemon! You can battle them in X & Y!

  • TCMets

    Maybe they kept Mega Charizard Fire/Flying and not Fire/Dragon so it can participate in the awesome sky battles?

    Or just because they’re the classics, leave them as is.

    • I don’t think so. I would have loved Charizard to be Fire/Dragon. Also, Flygon was in a Sky Battle and it is Ground/Dragon.

      • TCMets

        Yes, but Flygon has Levitate. Flying types and those with Levitate can participate in them.

        • Yea! I added it to my comment! I could see Pokemon like Eelektross, Dudou, etc. not being able to participate!

          • Milotic4Ever

            You mean being able to participate?

          • TCMets

            It’d be pretty weird those Pokemon Afarr mentioned participating in Sky Battles, I could definitely see them not being able to participate too.

          • Milotic4Ever

            I can see certain moves. like Gravity and Knock Down, to be banned too. It would be a bit unfair for an Electric type to parti-

            wait, Zapdos and Emolga. They are part Electric.

          • TCMets

            Gravity ends the sky battle! xD

  • Jenny

    oh gosh YES I really love Mega Charizards design. And Mega Venasaur’s new ability is fantastic, its’ my favorite gen 1 starter I can’t wait to use it ahhhhh
    I also really love the bank idea, only 5 dollars a year, that’s really good and affordable for a lot of people. I’m glad they are not milking it, it could be 5 dollars a month like most things are now a days.

  • Milotic4Ever

    Going back to this Pokemon, I really hope this is Alpaca-like, because who doesn’t like llamas? (DeviantART has plenty of them) What type do you think it is? It could be Normal/Ice with good defenses.

    • TCMets

      Normal/Dark

      • Smurphy

        I hope it’s dark. I only use fire, electric, dragon, and dark types (avatar challenge fire nation), and my school has a llama named Wizard. I would totally name it Wizard, which would work too cuz it would be like a Dark Wizard

    • Milotic4Ever

      I can totally see this thing using Cotton Guard, btw.

    • Hmm. Normal, Dark, Ice. Those types are running through my mind!

    • GLITCH’D

      I for one would really love a psychic llama!

    • Skiddo

      Not being able to see it’s eyes reminds me of Deino… But I think it will be Normal/Dark

  • thekingbrad

    Chespin Torchic and Squirtle FTW

  • PercyEspeon

    I like this. A lot. Clears things about the connectivity and I’m glad they resolved it. Actually, it’s a lot more than I expected. And I knew the Trevor or Tierno had to give you the starters, but I’m glad that Sycamore gives you the Kanto ones. Maybe I’ll use them, who knows? I might just want to try out the new Pokemon first. But I do like the Mega designs, particularly Mega Charizard. It looks like a awesome dragon (If only…..if only…IsowantedDragontypeforCharizard). And that new Pokemon? I want it, it’s so fluffy xDI really hope it gets addressed soon (and not be like Oorotto…..forreal don’t ignore your mistake, GF!). All in all, I’m beyond MEGA excited for X and Y to come out! 38 days away!

    • TheNintendoChip

      38 days too many… c:

      • Milotic4Ever

        at least it’s not another 9 months away.

        • TheNintendoChip

          True dat.

        • PercyEspeon

          Agreed. That dry period after the announcement was like torture times infinity

      • TCMets

        These 38 days are gonna go by so fast.

        • Milotic4Ever

          Or really slow if you pay too much attention. Get your mind off of this (if you can), and before you know it, the games are out by tomorrow. 😉

          • TCMets

            Hahaha, that’s right!

          • PercyEspeon

            Easier said than done for me. I would be like ‘…………………………………….Time to check for more news five minutes later! :D’
            I’m that pathetic

        • thekingbrad

          *slow

  • Milotic4Ever

    Dang, DeviantART, you sure work fast! *sniff* *sniff* Do I smell cute Alpaca Pokemon?

    • guest

      got any links? 🙂

    • belmad

      How hard it tries, it won’t have cool hairdo as this infamous emo llama
      That’s how you make it simple yet effective, sorry.

      • xseedatlus

        somethign bout it is….AWSOME. Man I waaaant.

      • Jordin

        Umbrella ella eh eh…

        • xseedatlus

          umbrella ghost…………….

      • Milotic4Ever

        Skrillex Llama?

  • FennikSwirl

    SO do you get both starters at he same time or after you finish the game

    • Milotic4Ever

      I don’t think we know yet, but its sounds like they’re implying that we get them as soon as we arrive to the Professor.

    • Jordin

      First you get the Kalos starters from Tierno (I think) Then when you meet Sycamore at Lumiose city he will give you the Kanto starters.

      • Sable

        So… this would really be like the Monkeys. Only we decide which one we want, and that, oh, THEY ARE STARTERS AND NOT MONKEY REPLACEMENTS!

        • Jordin

          Yup. Which team are you going with? Chespin and Charmander <33

          • Sable

            Pretty much XD.

          • Jordin

            Since we are getting a Torchic and I need a water type and one of my favorite Pokemon is Mudkip I’m Masuda methoding a shiny one to use in my playthrough.

          • Sable

            Heh. I have my Shiny Charizard, and I’m not really sure if there are any other Shiny Starters I’d really like to get in preparation…

          • xseedatlus

            ima picking fennekin and bulba.

      • FennikSwirl

        O so pretty much right after you get the Kalos starters you can get the Kanto Starters

        • Jordin

          Yeah pretty much xD

    • I believe it goes like this! Prof. Sycamore sends you everything you need to start! (3 Pokemon (Trevor and Tierno already have there own), 5 Pokedexes, and 25 Pokeballs! Then when you beat the game you return to Prof. Sycamore and he gives you your Kanto Starter! Yet, this in not 100% Confirmed, yet Tierno and Trevor already having there own Pokemon is!

      • thekingbrad

        Actually im pretty sure we’re gonna get the kanto starters at the beginning of our adventure…

      • thekingbrad

        yeah watch this video…it sounds like they imply we get them at the beginning…at 0:16

  • regidudeam

    Magnezone has a gender????

    • FennikSwirl

      I dont think soo

    • Sable

      It evidentially does now.

    • Skiddo

      Do you guys think all the gender less Pokemon will get genders?

      • regidudeam

        I think so….it would make attract a lot more useful. Plus the french language has masculine or feminine words, but no neuter….maybe that’s why….???

    • xseedatlus

      whered you see that at?
      EDIT:Ohhh. its on that pic down their. da heck? I thought magenzone was genderless

      • Toshiro

        It is either an error, or it’s a new fact. If it took 17 years for Pokémon Professors to discover the fairy type, then maybe it took them the same amount of time to discover that a bunch of sentient magnets can indeed learn attract now.

    • Milotic4Ever

      Maybe it’s just a sample screenshot and they didn’t pay attention to it, Audino

  • regidudeam

    Jolteon is Electric/Normal???? Right above Pikachu
    http://www.pokemonxy.com/_ui/img/_it/screenshots/sept_bank_p3_01_it_quoa3.jpg

    • Sable

      … Uuuuh, no it’s not.

      http://www.pokemonxy.com/_ui/img/_en/screenshots/sept_bank_p3_01_quoa3.jpg

      As I just realized you can see Jolteon at the top. There is clearly no other Element Box there. It’s pure Electric.

      • regidudeam

        Why is the italian one different from the english one? refresh the page to see my link.

        • Sable

          … Wtf? Yeah I didn’t see that…. Just… What is THAT noise?

          • regidudeam

            noise???

          • Sable

            Eh, another word for nonsense, kinda picked it up from a friend, heh. But regardless, the important point is, that makes no sense.

          • regidudeam

            Electrical Engineering reference….
            But yeah…this makes no sense…and both are from the official websites….WHAT!?

  • Prince Azulon

    The churning in my stomach cannot stop! Mega-Charizard looks too epic for words to describe. That sleek, jet-like body, the mad horns sticking out from it’s head. Game Freak you made me proud to be a Nintendo/Game Freak fan today. Not that I had any doubts. cough*cough ;D

  • Prince Azulon

    The starters seem to retain most if not all of their Original Form designs with an exception for Charizard. It seems very simple yet epic just something that haters need because too drastic of a change can “RUIN” their Childhood.”May the odds EVER be in our FAVOR.”

    • thekingbrad

      Lol If genwunners still aren’t satisfied yet they need to just go die or go play some bakugan or something

      • defensivebastiodon

        I have to say, I thought Bakugan was a good idea. It just never took off.

      • Prince Azulon

        Amen to that!

  • defensivebastiodon

    Yay! Venusaur is even more defensive!

    • thekingbrad

      with thick fat. THICK FAT. this is frikin amazing

      • defensivebastiodon

        I know! I suddenly LOVE Bulbasaur! That means its only weak to psychic right?

        • TCMets

          And Flying.

          • defensivebastiodon

            Thanks. It also is still weak to fire and ice, just not as bad.

          • regidudeam

            WIth thick fat, it takes effectively neutral damage from fire and ice attacks. And it’s POISON. Fighting resist and FAIRY KILLER

          • defensivebastiodon

            Exactly! It finally gets love! Right now I’m disappointed with Blastoise.

          • regidudeam

            Wait but Blastoise looks awesome, even as Venusaur fan myself

          • defensivebastiodon

            It’s not so much the design. It’s the ability and no secondary typing(that’s not as big of a deal.) right now the boosted stats haven’t been revealed. That will be the seller for me.

          • regidudeam

            Oh I know what you mean. Yeah we don’t know much about Mega Launcher ability, but it has to be useful, other wise they wouldn’t give to blastoise.

          • xseedatlus

            Mega Launcher is GARBAGE. It only increase the power of pulse moves. shouldve gave blastoise an ability that powers up beam and cannon moves 🙁

          • regidudeam

            Again we don’t know the details just yet. Maybe all of blastoise’s stats are boosted evenly, so there is nothing prominent to write. Plus I never expected Sky Uppercut to be boosted by iron fist. I thought that it literally had to have the word “punch” in it to be boosted. Maybe Mega Launcher boosts Hydro Pump, I mean it makes sense.

          • Milotic4Ever

            Hyper Beam and Hydro Cannon would be OP’d to the max.

          • defensivebastiodon

            Perhaps there’s a new, more powerful pulse move. But right now it seems pointless if it can only use it with water pulse.

        • Skiddo

          I’ve always loved Bulbasaur…

      • xseedatlus

        and combine that wityh more def. and sp.def and you have one hell of a tank. plus it resists poison….only flying scares him. 🙂 K I am picking bulba as my starter than

    • regidudeam

      Yes…Bulbasaur is my favorite starter from kanto…

  • George Costas

    the new pokemon looks like a mix of deino with the hair in face, absol’s colors, and a goat

    • thekingbrad

      im calling it Normal/Dark, Normal/Ice or Ice

      • Milotic4Ever

        I called Normal/Ice too.

    • defensivebastiodon

      What new pokemon?

      • thekingbrad

        its on here somewhere…its like a llama looking thing thats black and white. If you dont see it you can check serebii real quick

  • jstar

    The one thing that really pisses me off about all of this is the fact that the special GOLD X and Y 3DS XL won’t be available in America. SMH

  • Skiddo

    So Pokemon Direct did give us what some of us were hoping for: a new Pokemon!

    • TCMets

      It gave me exactly what I was hoping for 🙂

      • Jordin

        Aren’t they going to be released in December? Does this mean I can’t import Pokemon until December?? D:

        • TCMets

          Nope, not until December. They still have to develop it, and I guess this makes sure people who buy the game right away can’t immediately transfer over super strong Pokemon to breeze through the game.

          • Jordin

            Oh 🙁 Should I get Chespin, Squirtle, and Torchic then?

          • TCMets

            CHESPIN

          • TCMets

            Or you can use one of the other two, and I can trade you a Chespin egg when we get the opportunity to breed.

          • Jordin

            I wanted to use the Kanto starters though. It looks like I’m going to use Mudkip on the other version I get after.

          • TCMets

            Squirtle then? Arm cannons!

          • Jordin

            Maybe or I could go down the route of Charmander and avoiding Torchic…

          • TCMets

            Mega Charizard is pretty damn awesome.

          • Jordin

            It looks really different from Charizard!

          • TCMets

            Just imagine a shiny one 😉

          • Jordin

            They have to make them for all the other starters now or fans would form a huge rebellion. Just imagine a Mega Sceptile 😉 Tsunekazu Ishihara said that he cant wait to see what ALL the Pokemon look like in their Mega forms…Something along those lines..

          • TCMets

            My first Pokemon is going to unleash its potential!! ^_^

            I hope Mega Sceptile gets a boost in Attack. It sort of got nerfed after the Physical/Special split of Generation 4 where it was attacks classified as such, and not types. Sceptile can learn so many awesome physical moves like Leaf Blade, Rock Slide, and Earthquake!

          • Jordin

            Did you see it using Leaf Blade in the game? If not heres the link- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bf96hohxyM&feature=c4-overview&list=UU7yMooezVAKSTHrL-pG3sWg it’s around 6:40.

          • TCMets

            Yes! So awesome! Look at Sceptile in 3D <3

          • Jordin

            I can just imagine the Mega evolutions yet to be revealed in CoroCoro! (Swampert please hurry up and reveal yourself)

          • TCMets

            I would love if Sceptile and Swampert were two of the Mega Evolutions revealed in a few days! 😀

          • Skiddo

            Mega Sceptile, Mega Torterra, Mega Serperior, Mega Meganium, Mega Swampert, and Mega Empoleon are going to look SOOOOOOOOOOO EPIC

          • TCMets

            Mega Serperior better have Contrary!

          • Jordin

            x9000! Have you ever thought that the Pokemon in the screenshots from the boxes could be getting Mega Evolutions? If so Gyarados, and the others in the Pokemon Bank screenshots will be Mega evolved!

          • TCMets

            Nope, didn’t think that hahaha. I just thought it was a lot of random Pokemon, and it was a lot of legendaries lol.

          • Jordin

            Also a lot of the Pokemon in the trailers have been getting them so you never know 😀 Gyarados has been featured in trailers, screenshots..It’s also a very likely candidate.

          • TCMets

            Mega Evolve back into a Magikarp, but with insane stats! xD

          • Jordin

            Oh Game freak..it’s what you do to meee xD You know these are the best games ever and they are definitely going to be worth the wait! The more I see the more obsessed! I’m supposed to be finishing homework and finish reading a book and write a literary analysis/essay before Friday, here I am on Pokejungle all day long XD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwrstxuicZk&list=UUZywaCS_y9YOSSAC9z3dIeg&feature=player_embedded#t=0

            BTW, this^

          • TCMets

            LMAO! Never saw that! Dirk did a great reenactment!

          • Jordin

            Oh GEICO…you know I saw a green lizard around my house the other day I went to take a picture but it ran off : I see we are getting off topic, wouldn’t like to get the Mods mad! BTW, “I ate a dirty cheeseburger the other day” 😉

          • Milotic4Ever

            If Gyarados, then Milotic!

          • Milotic4Ever

            Mega Swampert with Sap Sipper will crush souls in its wake.

          • Jordin

            All the more reason for me to want one!

          • jwaterworks

            they probs won’t do Sap Sipper :/

            it would be cool and all.. but personally i want something like pure power or Huge power. Since Swampert has high attack stats already it would a pretty good abillity for it

          • regidudeam

            AGREE!!!!

          • Imoru Imiti

            It would be too much if all Pokemon, but all starters yes.

  • Mega Blastoise will be such a tank.

    Also , if you have both X and Y downloaded to your 3/2ds you can swap them via ‘First National Bank of Kalos’.

  • CL

    I’m so excited for X and Y because I know the remaining days will fly over. I remember saying, Eight Weeks to go! And now It is so close!

    I also really like the new Pokemon that was shown, briefly lol. I see it being on my team :3

  • Toshiro

    Hey everyone! I checked the Pokémon X and Y U.S. website: http://www.pokemonxy.com/en-us/strategy/. According to this picture, Mawile is exclusive to Pokémon X because Clauncher and Swirlix are in the same box with it!

    • regidudeam

      X and never looked back. Hope Clauncher becomes water/fire

    • xseedatlus

      waht really. WOOOO. So I wonder who is gonna be the 3rd er 4th(counting yvetal) exclusive for y

      • Toshiro

        It’ll be Sableye. It’s Mawile’s counterpart.

        • xseedatlus

          *Face palm* oh yeah. I remember now.

          • BP

            How can you say that?
            It’s like saying Helioptile is exclusive to Pokemon X because its in the same box also.

          • He makes his statement because in all the games where Mawile and Sableye were in, they were both version exclusives 😉

    • Milotic4Ever

      I’m digging these sprite/models,

    • ShinyXatu

      If Sableye is exclusive to Pokemon Y, I will chuck a Cascoon into Lake Verity. Where it will be caught by a majestic shiny MAGIKARP.

  • Beartic

    I wonder if you have the Kalos starters before you start your adventure. Maybe the game asks you at the same time you pick your gender…

    • Skiddo

      I don’t think you do. Doesn’t Tierno give it to you? And the trailers show you choosing it… Plus Shauna asks to see the starters…

  • xseedatlus

    Screw the kalos starter evos.This is good enough news for me. And I cant wait to go on a journey with fennekin AND bulba(sorry. too lazy to add saur)

  • Skiddo

    is Mega Charizard supposed to resemble something like a mutant pterodactyl…?

    Just realized it has wings on its hands

    • xseedatlus

      is it? lol. I believe so…. Ehhh. blastoise is weirder though. it has MINI cannons on its hands. Itd be better if it just had that single cannon on its back.

      • Skiddo

        Yes! I thought Mega Blastoise was pretty bizarre looking…

  • ShayminSkyflower

    Now I have to worry about which kalos starter to pick I want blastiose but charivari looks so awesome also I want venesaur but I will most likely be choosing chespin what do you guys think I should choose. Also with the new pokemon bank I will somehow have to convince my mom to let me get a deput card 🙁

    • TCMets

      Ask for a $15 3DS card for your Birthday, it’ll pay for the Pokemon Bank for 3 years.

      • Milotic4Ever

        Or Christmas!

        • TCMets

          Oh, even better because it’s right at that time!

        • ShayminSkyflower

          That’s a really good idea p.s are there any pokemon events in china because my moms there and I could get here to go

    • Jordin

      You can get an E-Shop card for $20 I don’t know if they are going to make one especially for the Pokemon Bank but with $20 you can get 4 years worth of the service. They are at Walmart for $20. http://www.3dsview.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/prepaid.png

  • regidudeam

    Gen 6 is the BEST GENERATION….agree with me. (yes you too genwunners)

    • Skiddo

      By far the best, and we haven’t even played the games yet!

      • BP

        Or you can just buy a 2DS!!! 😀
        lololol

        • Skiddo

          What do you mean? O.o Skiddo is confused by your reply :p (I know what a 2DS is, don’t explain that part to me)

          • MacSkiddo

            omg are im a skiddo too!

    • xseedatlus

      I AGREE.

    • Maple

      Many people will cry on October 12th, as i am resisting to do so right now.

      • thekingbrad

        ..and i still dont have a 3ds….

        • regidudeam

          Don’t worry you will have one….

          • thekingbrad

            if i have to get a frikin job…..I WILL DO IT

          • regidudeam

            This is worth getting a job for.

        • TheRece25

          ME 2, I will get one

      • regidudeam

        I’m crying in joy.

        • xseedatlus

          I am crying at gamefreaks incredible sucess

          • regidudeam

            I can’t believe they successfully made Mega Evolutions for Gen 1 starters that even genwunners have to sit down and like.

          • TCMets

            They kept the simplicity of their designs and just brought it out beautifully.

          • regidudeam

            agree, I’m looking forward to more

          • xseedatlus

            yes agree.(cept blastoise kinda. but oh well. its still cool)

          • Maple

            If all of this crying keeps up the world will be flooded within the next couple of months. We have to try to stop crying or gamefreak will get blamed for our own destruction.

          • Deoxys911

            Don’t worry, Team Magma will save us!

          • Maple

            Idea. Next generation six game is based in Hoenn 12 years later. Since the past events Teams Magma and Aqua have become good guys and are now on the same team. Furthermore there is a new team that wants to catch Rayquaza and in doing so he is not there to stop Groudon and Kyogre who are fighting again.

    • belmad

      We haven’t seen Gen 6 yet.

      • regidudeam

        My response cannot change regardless. I mean my expectations were already crossed over on January because it’s the first 3D pokemon game. You have no idea what everything else is making me feel right now…..

    • Prince Azulon

      I agree!

  • willy410

    The one thing I’m worried about with the pokebank, is that they are going to give us limited storage inside x and y to try and make us buy the bank.

    • IntimidatingWurmple

      I really hope they don’t do that. But I don’t think GF would do that type of stuff.

      • regidudeam

        yeah they won’t do that because it’s an optional feature

        • IntimidatingWurmple

          True

        • MasterMime

          I’m sorry to disappoint you both but in the Nintendo Direct…They clearly said that the ability to store Pokemon in-game would be limited. So it does seem they’re going to do that to encourage Pokemon Bank usage

          • regidudeam

            I’m sure 20 boxes (or 25 I don’t remember) like the previous games is more than enough for me….I don’t fill pokedexes. I battle.

          • Deoxys911

            To be fair, the Storage System has been limited in all of the games.

      • willy410

        I hope they don’t, but the might give us 12-18 boxes instead of 24.

        • IntimidatingWurmple

          I just completed my pokemon black pokedex (HURRAY) but I had like 20 boxes and assuming they will have 100+ I need like 24 D:

  • TCMets

    Were those 3 moves used in the trailer Frenzy Plant, Blast Burn, and Hydro Cannon?

    • Jordin

      Yup.

      • TCMets

        Blast Burn looks freaking amazing, but slightly disappointed by Frenzy plant. I want gigantic roots rushing at the opponent and slamming into them! Like this: (Go to 2:30) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-X03D3tSVU

        • Jordin

          They have different animations, Mega Blaziken had a different one so did they change it?? I liked the Mega Blaziken Blast Burn better.

          • TCMets

            Really? I’d have to watch Blaziken’s again.

          • Jordin

            Oops, I thought you linked the recent trailer! They did change though.

          • TCMets

            Nah, I linked something else with how I want Frenzy Plant to look instead lol.

          • Jordin

            I know I saw :p I hope they make an animated trailer again!

          • BP

            That move Blaziken uses isn’t Blast Burn. It’s overheat

          • Jordin

            Oh okay thanks for clearing that up!

          • Jordin

            Blaziken Blast Burn

            Charizard Blast Burn

          • TCMets

            Hmm, we don’t see the end of Blaziken’s attack, but they both start out with that circle of fire!

          • Jordin

            The difference I see is the fire circling around Blaziken but Charizard’s doesn’t show it circling him. It could be they skipped frames but..IDK.

          • TCMets

            We’ll find out in due time 😀

          • Jordin

            My calender is ready XD I should probably get to finishing my homework! Nice taking to you, bye 🙂

          • TCMets

            Ok, take care!

          • That is Blaziken’s Overheat btw ^^

        • MasterMime

          I’m REALLY disappointed with Frenzy Plant ESPECIALLY after how AMAZINGLY AWESOME Power Whip’s animation is

    • regidudeam

      Yup, still unhappy about the recharge though

      • TCMets

        Lol, I don’t mind the recharge.

        • Milotic4Ever

          …if you are able to knock out the opponent by then.

      • Jordin

        Well there has to be repercussion to a very powerful move. Imagine if Hyper Beam had 150 power and 30 PP..*shivers*

        • regidudeam

          I want them to do RBY mechanics, where if you KO, there is no recharge. I know that psybeam and hyper beam have RBY sounds….maybe this is possible…?

          • TCMets

            That would be amazing.

  • Maple

    Hopefully we can transfer a hole box at a time rather than only six. I have over 16 boxes of Pokémon that I need to transfer from my White 2.

    • Jordin

      I think they showed that in the video where the whole box was grabbed.

      • Maple

        I think that also at that part it showed it asking if you wanted to send that box to the storage too. I just hope that is the same for transferring from the generation five games.

    • ShinyXatu

      I would want to have the ability to manipulate the box of my BWB2W2 games while I transfer so that I don’t have to close the software, boot the game, and do it for “convenience”.

      • Maple

        Oh yeah. In the past while transferring it would always tell me i cannot transfer because of hm moves. It would be nice for it to be ok to have hm moves and to be able to move pokemon out of one of the boxes that players wish to transfer.

  • CL

    Are the prices for the Poke Bank revealed for other countries than the US ? 🙂

  • Wes

    I’m willing to bet money that this new pokemon is the one from the anime trailer. 🙂

    I love these new evolutions, but I’m kind of disappointed that Charizard didn’t get Dragon. Oh, well. At least he gets a boost in other ways.

    • Skiddo

      And we won’t find out from GF what it is, just like they did with Oorotto 🙁 (UNLESS COROCORO)

      • ShinyXatu

        We can only hope that Corocoro will reveal Starter Evolutions, Oorotto and this llama-thing to fill in missing gaps!

        • Skiddo

          And other Starter Mega Evos :p

    • regidudeam

      Even if charizard was fire/dragon with levitate, you would still have to switch out to charizard and then mega evolve so you can’t really get rid of that pesky 4x weakness to rock.

      • lala

        OMG! We had you the first time! Stop riding blastoise dick. It’s not bash charzarid day. Sheesh

        • regidudeam

          I’m not allowed to state facts?

      • NoDice

        Well it seems that Megas will get boosts in 2 stats, so perhaps Charizards other stat will hopefully be speed- so you can LEAD IN-> MEGA-> Drought-> PWN.

        • It is already confirmed indeed that all mega evolutions get two stat boosts. For Charizard it will be twoo boosts in Special Attack. For Venusaur it is 1 in Defense and Special Defence. Just Like Lucario. It will be Two in Attack. So yeah, these Mega-Evolutions will really be PWNAGE! Use thief or knock off and they’re back to normal 😉

          • NoDice

            I wonder about that. I guess the only way to see is to try it for ourselves in a month-ish. Im not sure if the Knock off strategy will work- seems like the mechanic is much too fleshed out just to be counteracted by something as simple as a move. Im thinking once the evolution happens, it stays, regardless of what its holding- since the item allows it to Mega Evolve, instead of it being instantaneous.

    • NoDice

      What we really need is a freaking ability to clear entry hazards… unless they nerf Stealth Rock. Maybe make the mon frail to provide balance to it (since hazard removing through ability is a bit OP).

  • Skiddo

    Is it just me or were Charmander and Charizard’s cries different?

    • belmad

      Cries are updated.

      • Skiddo

        I know that but the other’s that we’ve heard didn’t seem TOO different…

        • belmad

          Actually Bulbasaur sounds different too, where Squirtle sounds more like ugraded version of the older one.

    • They updated cries! Venusaur’s sounded the most different!

  • Kyle Kottenbrook

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=An8IZNbAHXU ok in this at about 50 seconds you can see the trainer with short hair!

    • Skiddo

      Who do you think that guy is? Champion? Champion’s Dad? Champion’s GRANDPA? Leader of the Bad Guys? Someone with the International Police? Korrina’s Dad?

      • Kyle Kottenbrook

        some random guy by the tower of mastery? 😀

      • Random Person around the Tower of Mastery!

  • Owen Lawson Howell III

    Great news and all, but I’m not looking forward to trading my Pokemon from my Japanese versions of Black/Black 2 to my English versions of White/White 2.

    Blasted region lock… :/

  • Dregoon

    I guess by “later” they mean when you either beat the champion and/or complete the regional dex.

  • AnonGirl

    Akamaru pokemon confirmed
    file:///C:/Users/Erika1406/Documents/Screen-Shot-2013-09-04-at-14.45.09.png

  • AnonGirl

    Akamaru pokemon confimed

    • Trusk

      Where in the video was this shown? Beginning, halfway through, or near the end?

      • AnonGirl

        The clip was for like a second at the end and akamaru is from naruto…

  • Dominic

    Six things that ran through my mind :
    1. Thank Arceus we can transfer Pokemon!!!
    2. What? I have to pay?? well at least the free trial will be helpful…
    3. Yes! Kanto Starters get mega-evolutions… because trainers and pokemon have mathching jewellery???
    4. Oh dear, Charizard has drought … I can hear the weather wars
    5. Better question why the psyduck is Blastoise not part steel????????
    6. apparently there was a llama

    • ShinyXatu

      Yes, a llama there was and a llama Gamefreak shall hide until they decide to reveal it in full 😀

  • MacSkiddo

    ok i hope that there is a system in x/y like in past generations where u can transfer pokemon over im not paying a $5 fee for my level 5 mudkip

    • Milotic4Ever

      It’s only $5 for a WHOLE year. If it was $6 a year, that’s 50 cents a month, so it’s actually less than that.

    • Your not paying? $5 FOR A YEAR! Pokemon is just being generous! It takes money to save and store all of the data. Without paying they will not have the funds to keep it! Also, you get a month free trial. Then you have to pay the fee. It’s not much.

      • MacSkiddo

        wait its $5 dollars a year oh i thought it was monthly sorry for beign stupid 🙁

    • Sable

      Well, hate to burst your bubble, but this IS the System. It will have a month free trial when it first comes out, so you can at least do all your transferring then.

    • regidudeam

      $5 for 20 years is much better than a 2nd 3DS for $189, which is not going to last 20 years, as a nintendo 4DS will come out by then.

  • Wes

    Does anyone know at what point in the video the new llama was shown? I don’t want to research the whole thing because I’m a Snorlax. >.>

    • talesotaku

      I think about 15 minutes in….it’s barely shown for a split second.

      • King Phoenix

        Ha wasn’t supposed to be shown

        • Sable

          Or was he? It may have been an accident, but it’s a blink and you miss it affair, and even finding in the video is kind of tricky. They’ve had other new Pokemon showing up in other official stuff for sometime, such as Skiddo, so it may have just been a nice treat to the perceptive viewer.

    • 23Skiddsy

      You’re going to have to have very good freeze-frame reflexes if you want to see it in the video itself.

  • Pseudolegendary

    Hey everyone on pokejungle I’m new to writing on here but I have been reading your articles for a while and I just wanted to mention that this new white pokemon that has been shown is confirmation that the recent “leaked kalos dex” is fake I checked all the descriptions that were on the “leaked dex” and none of them seemed to fit.

    • Wes

      Thank you! I’m so glad someone took the time to check that! ^-^

      • Pseudolegendary

        No problem I was just curious as to whether the list was real or not lol

        • MErfth

          Dude ur name is Sick!

          • Pseudolegendary

            Thanks bro

    • regidudeam

      Yes, no fire/fighting littleo evolution or 9-tailed fennekin evolution.

    • Milotic4Ever

      As did I earlier too! 😀

    • Kyle Q

      I couldn’t find a compatible description either… I’m really am glad, not ready for the full list to leak till at least October 1st (at the earliest), and a lot of the list seemed to redundant…

    • Captain Combusken

      I had a brief check over that like when I first saw Follama (Folicle because hair lol and Llama). Glad someone went through the list properly! I only really looked at the Normal, Ice and Psychic types. Because that’s the types I think it might be.

      Still, I am a little sad. The backwards-in-time Fairy dragon Psuedo legend sounded really cool, and there were some other cool and interesting Fairies as well.

  • MErfth

    Can somone make a godlike picture for me of Luxray that says MErfth.plz

    • Jordin

      🙂 Credit to Xous54 on DeviantART for Luxray.

  • Maple

    All of these megas are really good, but think about Venusaur. It has boosted defenses and because of thick fat it is only weak to phychic and flying type moves. If Venusaur is fighting a Fire type or something with a fire type move, no worries. Mega evolve to take that hit well and use earthquake.

    • Milotic4Ever

      If you’re fast enough…

      • Maple

        I don’t need to be faster because I’m not going to take too much damage. Oh no, unless his pokemon decided to become mega aswell. Now i wonder how much this will change battles with all of this uncertainty.

        Edit: For some reason I assume that your pokemon becomes mega at the beginning of the turn.

        • Senoel the Turtwick

          I think Milotic means fast enough to mega-evolve

          • Milotic4Ever

            Yeah, sorry if I didn’t clarify.

          • Maple

            Does mega evolution happen at the beginning of the turn?

          • Sable

            No. You activate it manually.

          • Maple

            Yeah, but does it happen going by how fast my pokemon is or does it happen before anyone gets to attack?

          • Sable

            Well, we don’t know that for certain, but I’d imagine it’ll probably be based on your speed, as you transform when it’s your turn. It could activate before that though. Doesn’t help our only test of it is a Pokemon that outsped the competition tremendously, so that didn’t really tell us. *Mewtwo vs the Demo Pokemon*

          • Maple

            Crobat’s as well as Mewtwo’s base speed stat are the same at 130.

          • Sable

            Yeah, but I think if I remember correctly by that point he was already evolved, because I don’t think Sycamore started with Crobat. *goes to check*

          • Milotic4Ever

            It can happen anytime at the touch of a button, and still attack the same turn. 🙂

      • Samurott

        poison too can be a big weak for venusaur

        • Kyle Q

          Poison types resist poison type attacks, so Venusaur receives neutral damage…

        • Milotic4Ever

          Poison -> Poison, NVE
          Poison -> Grass SE
          Grass/Poison neutralizes the weakness for Poison-type.

  • Samurott

    I have a question: How can I transfer my pokemon from pokemon blanck and white 2 to x and Y!! I mean, black and white 2 is compatible with the pokemon banc app!! we needd a video aout it how does it works

    • Sable

      Their is the Pokemon Transfer app that works in conjunction with the Pokemon Bank app. You’ll use the Transfer to send your BW2 Pokemon to the Bank, which can then be accessed by X and Y.

      • Samurott

        ohhh okokok like when you are sending a random pokemon to another person right?

        • Sable

          … eh? No, you just use the tool to select Pokemon, from the official website, entire boxes even, and just upload that to the Bank. They are transferred to the Bank, and then you can access those Pokemon in the Bank Boxes in X and Y.

        • Kyle Q

          Right, but you will be sending them to yourself instead. B&W and B2&W2 can only deposit PKMN into the bank, X&Y can deposit and withdraw PKMN.

          • Samurott

            I know that but pokemon has made it before pokemon blank and white realesed

          • Kyle Q

            Not quite sure I follow what you mean… ?

          • Samurott

            sorry my english sucks,but forget it

          • Kyle Q

            Its all good… If you care to explain a little more I’d be glad to help.

  • Samurott

    Sooo Pokemon, PokeJungle, GameFreak and Nintendo!! Thanks for everything, you made my day :’) thanks a lot for the news and now I begin to believe that Samurott can get a Mega-Evolution 😀 thanks Arceus

  • Hugo

    hopefully they reveal the new pokemon and orrotto in next corocoro. mega blastoise is my favorite btw.

    • Skiddo

      Mega Venusaur <3

      • Samurott

        right now all the people love venusaur but he needed it 😀

        • Skiddo

          I’ve loved the Bulbasaur line since the beginning!

      • Maple

        I favourite Blastoise, think that Venusaur is the best, and aknowledge the potential of Charizard’s drought.

      • Hugo

        mega venusaur is my second favorite ;D I am probably in the minority of liking mega charizard the least

        • Maple

          Don’t feel alone. I am with you. I will always be with you.

          • Hugo

            buy me dinner first, then we will talk 😉

          • Maple

            I don’t have a job yet and am saving my money for Pokémon X.

          • Hugo

            I can wait.

          • Maple

            Well I am sure I’ll see you around here at pokejungle.net

          • ShinyXatu

            Thanks for linking us I’m sure we would have never found our way back to the site we are currently on XD just kidding of course

        • regidudeam

          I’m with you…even as a Venusaur fan, in my opinion:

          1. Mega Blastoise
          2. Mega Venusaur
          3. Mega Charizard

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        I like all three of them.

    • Samurott

      pokemon has two pokemon that they didnt reveled! Ooroto and that weird pokemon

      • Hugo

        yeah that kind of bothered me. but then again, I was already grumpy watching pokemon direct at 4 in the morning.

    • Mitchell McKelvey

      I hope they reveal it, Mega Kangaskhan, and Oorotto. <3

      • Hugo

        oh yeah, almost forgot about mega kangaskan. they need to reveal him too.

  • Samurott

    my team: Froakie, Torchic, Bulbasaur, Samurott, starly and another one

    • Skiddo

      So far mine is: Fennekin, Venusaur, Flabébé, Helioptile, ???, and ???

      EDIT: Where do the Starly and Samurott come from? The Bank?

    • Hugo

      i have too many favorite pokemon, i have no clue what my first team will be

    • MasterMime

      Am I the only one who doesn’t play with “teams”, I just catch all Pokemon and play with them all

  • Mitchell McKelvey

    I think the new Pokemon we saw is an evolution of Swirlix. Pokemon have undergone rapid changes in appearance before. Look at Magikarp and Gyarados. If I didn’t know any better, I would of thought they were unrelated. I personally love the new Pokemon. It looks so cute!

    • Skiddo

      That’s a possiblity, but Gyarados kept the whiskers that Magikarp had. I don’t think Swirlix would go through that drastic of a change, unless it maybe needed a Dusk Stone to evolve.

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        Swirlix still has the white, fluffy appearance if it were to evolve into this. I think it’s entirely not out of the question. I’ve seen so many rapid changes in evolution for some Pokemon. Some are more similar to their pre-evolutions though, such as Weavile.

        • Skiddo

          Swirlix is white?! I’m color blind! I thought it was pink!

          • Mitchell McKelvey

            It’s white and pink. And this shot of the new Pokemon is low resolution, taken from a video still of the Direct. So it may actually be showing some pink that we can’t really see!

          • Mitchell McKelvey

            Heck, I didn’t even know Swirlix had feet until the official screenshots came out. xD

          • Mitchell McKelvey

            Also, it still has the same tail like Swirlix, just bigger. If you look closely. You are right and that Pokemon keep one important feature when they evolve. I think for Swirlix it’s the tail and fluff to it’s appearance. I can not wait to see the official Ken Sugimori artwork of this Pokemon! <3

          • Jordin

            I made a theory earlier that Swirlix will evolve into a poodle and that may not be so Farfetch’d at the moment 😀

          • Mitchell McKelvey

            Yes. 😀 I’m really excited for this Pokemon!

  • RocketClauncher

    I love Mega Blastoise, but I’m not quite sure about its ability. Mega Launcher “raises the power of pulse type moves, such as Water Pulse and Dark Pulse (Dragon Pulse as well)”. This sounds great but the only “pulse” move Blastoise can learn is Water Pulse. Yeah sure the power boost would be really helpful…but maybe we will see new “Pulse” moves? Technically there could be one for every type sense it’s an extraction of energy. A Mega Blastoise with Water Pulse and Ice Pulse would be pretty cool.

    • Mitchell McKelvey

      It would be nice if we had Electric Pulse. Lol.

    • Skiddo

      Immediately after I read ‘Mega Launcher’ I thought “Hydro Pump’s going to get powered up!” Then I was told it only affects pulse moves :p

      • thekingbrad

        who knows they might count hydro pump as a pulse move

      • PokePoke

        Mabye the animations for the Pulse moves for Blastoise will show it firing from its cannons

    • Kyle Q

      There could be a major overhaul of movesets for PKMN, due partially to Mega Evolution. Ampharos can now learn Dragon Pulse now for instance, in X&Y.

      Mega Blastoise sounds like it will really shine in triple battles.

  • Mitchell McKelvey

    Oh my god! I really want Swirlix to evolve into this! I really do! A poodle would really be perfect! It’s fluffy, just like cotton candy! Please make it happen Game Freak! Not only is it food, it’s an animal too! Awesomeness! And I love poodles. I have a miniature poodle as a pet. <3

    • Jordin

      Me too! Poodle friends! XD

    • Skiddo

      YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        If they are unrelated, I might have to send a tweet to Junichi Masuda! xD They have the same tail, color, and fluff. I really want this to be the case! I want Spritzee to evolve into a Flamingo. It’s official website entry says it’s scent changes based on it’s diet. Flamingos change color based on their diet. It could be a combo of a flamingo and the plague doctor. Best of both worlds. Lol.

      • Mitchell McKelvey

        I just think Spritzee is too cute to be based off of the plague doctor. Such a grim topic for a kid’s game. But then again, we have Chandelure that burn souls. o.O

        • ShinyXatu

          Don’t forget about Hypno, or Hypno will make you forget about yourself. *shudders*

    • talesotaku

      I’d expect a poodle to be more curly or with its generically recognizable hair cut. Looks more like an alpaca to me…

      • Trusk

        All I would like to say is that if they could at least make a Fairy/Flying type evolution for Spritzee, I would thank Masuda for that. Spritzee does look like a bird, right?

  • Maple

    Yes! Very fast transferring.

  • Dicie

    Pros:
    The Megas.
    The new apps.
    Mega design changes are an improvement from MegaKhangaskan,
    Cons:
    Same typings for the Megas.
    Pokemon Bank is a paid service.
    Overall Conclusion:
    I was expecting a bit more, no OFFICIAL new Pokemon, but her, here’s hoping CoroCoro won’t be as disappointing, not that this was disappointing at all, but the information was minor, we could’ve waited a little longer to learn this information. I think there rumors going around about MegaBlastoise’s cannon getting larger, so that isn’t a surprise. The arm cannons are a nice touch. MegaVenusaur has sprouted a tree and a meaner look (like all of them), so this is probably my least favorite as far as design, but playability-wise, I think all three will be great. MegaCharizard has larger wings and “hand-wings,” along with a more red-orange color, an improved tail and a more dragon look to it, but still it remains as Fire/Flying. I wish these would’ve been Grass/Poison, Water/Steel and Fire/Dragon, but whatever. With CoroCoro in a week, I’m not completely disappointed in this Pokemon Direct, but I am saddened for some of it. With 5 1/2 weeks until the game releases, I don’t think they’ve released enough Pokemon (or a potential PokeDex leak from Hiro or Pokexperto), but CoroCoro and possible other reveals on random days might make up for that. I’m loving the games so far, so I hope they will live up to all of our expectations…!
    (This is my opinion, so please do not judge me, since that isn’t what Pokejungle is meant to be for, but positive comments are appreciated, but if you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it at all. I’d rather end off the night with a smile on my face from nice comments rather than have my self-esteem lowered because of trolls. :D)

    • defensivebastiodon

      I honestly won’t have a problem with paying. It probably won’t be much at all. Besides, they have to tend to the servers to keep them going for years and years. It’s all understandable. Except Mega Blastoise’s ability.

      • Dicie

        It is $5.00, and nor do I, but if they keep making mini-apps like this with microtransactions here and there, people will start to get frustrated. Take Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time as an example. The microtransactions altogether are $20.00, and the game is free. I feel like we pay $40.00 for Pokemon X and Y and that’s that. But I completely understand your opinion and I am not judging or critiquing you in any way. 😀

    • ShinyXatu

      Nice to see you again, Dedennyden. I am personally going for Mega Venusaur because 1. I have never owned a Bulbasaur in my Pokecareer and I want to get one now, and 2. I will be picking Froakie in Pokemon X which will be my main game and picking Squirtle will make me have two water types on my team and probably no status inflictors SO…yeah.

      • Dicie

        Well, nice to see you as well! School has been a pain and our professor is completely killing us with a ton of homework and extremely high expectations, but it’s all about the learning. I haven’t owned a Bulbasaur at all either, I don’t think, so it will be interesting to see what the outcome of that is. 38 more days until I get my precious DEDENNE! 😀

        • ShinyXatu

          I’ll allow you to be the first person in the world to own a Dedenne, because you’re Dicie 😀

          • Dicie

            Aww. Thanks! 😀

      • Kyudeci

        And that is why you are my best friend! Froakie and bulbasaur.

        • ShinyXatu

          All the way! We’ll make it to the League like no Trainer’s business! 😀

    • PercyEspeon

      I can totally understand. To me, it’s enough to tie us over until CoroCoro. Sure, I so wanted Charizard to become Dragon (I mean c’mon…..those wings scream dragon) but I kinda understand why: to give them minor changes to appease most people. My least favorite one is Venusaur…..it might just be that flower on its forehead >.< The Pokemon Bank I expect will be cheap and I understand why it's a paid service, for maintenance and to keep it going for future games. I so wanted them to address that new Pokemon, but I'm hoping for CoroCoro for Oorotto and that alpaca pokemon. I agree as well wit the Pokemon, I kidna want just a bit more, not all but most so I can plan my team for the games. It's like 37 days away and I'm still in a pickle. I love what they have revealed (yes even Mega….they're growing on me, just like Fairy type) and I know this will be an awesome game! 😀 I just would like more Pokemon, so that's why that alpaca Pokemon has got my attention the most, really, in my mind.

      • Dicie

        Yes! Great responses, I am impressed. 😀

  • defensivebastiodon

    Hm… That recent “leaked Kalos Dex List” doesn’t seem to have anything similar to the llama alpaca poodle thing revealed, so I am now 99.9% sure it’s fake.

    • Imoru Imiti

      I hope It’s fake Litleo final stage fire/fighting. Seriously must they have that type combination every generation.

      • gamesaq

        hoping not to see that type combo for a few generations. Hoping for a water/fire combo though

      • PokePoke

        Litleo should be Fire/Poison

  • ShinyXatu

    I am going to spend most of my free time this weekend going through every Pokemon game I have (Emerald, Firered, Platinum, Heartgold, Black, White, Black 2, White 2) and organizing all of my Pokemon that I want to get transferred to X, while also acquiring new Pokemon along the way. It will be an enormous uptaking in these last few weeks, but to catch them is my real test, and to train them is my cause.

    • gamesaq

      Gotta Catch’Em All. Pokemon!

    • MasterMime

      I have all of the gen 1-5 Pokemon and have them all trained to at least lvl 50…I think I’m going to start breeding them all, so I can train them in X/Y from the beginning again

      • Wes

        You sir, are a true Pokemon master. :{D

      • ShinyXatu

        Impressive, to say the least. The only reason why I don’t have them all is because it is so tedious to transfer, breed, catch, transfer, breed…

      • MasterMime

        Oh no not at all. Everyone has their own definition of “Pokemon Master”, me I love all Pokemon equally so my personal goal is to catch them and train them all. Some people’s definition of a Pokemon Champion is to train the strongest team and competitive battle…Competitive battling doesn’t interest me at all, so to each his own 😀

  • ShinyXatu

    Oh my gosh, an old memory just occurred to me. I have been trying to think about which Kanto starter had much of an emotional pull for me, and I couldn’t really think of which one, because I was introduced to Pokemania two generations too late. Well I just remembered an old Pokemon card I had (or still have) called Dark Venusaur and it had the “Best” insignia on it, and I thought it was the most incredible card ever. It may not be my rarest item, but it has an emotional pull (just like my holo Electivire that I pulled out of my very first Diamond and Pearl pack). Mega Venusaur for me in Pokemon X!

    • Imoru Imiti

      I started with Yellow version, then I got leaf green and chose Bulbasaur so I’m going with The same. Also For the Kalos starter I’ll choose Froakie, that case if the rumor able the weaker rival giving you their starter is true I’ll have 3 different types.

    • gamesaq

      Started with Red & Blue. Still have the original holo Charizard card (was my very 1st holo too) :D. Can’t wait to use him in XY.

  • Allie [randomanon]

    I’m really excited about Pokémon Bank!! I’ve been deciding which ‘mons I wanted to transfer ever since XY were announced, and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to. I just hope there’ll be a way to have it automatically charge my card like Netflix/Crunchyroll/etc. There is no way I’d remember to pay before any deadlines ahaha…

  • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

    Do you know how some people were asking when they revealed your NPC friends in the game, “How are they all gonna get the starters? There are only 3 Starters and there are 5 of us.”
    Well, considering they’re with you when you go to Professor Sycamore, maybe he gives the other 2 one of the kanto starters.
    What do you guys think?

    • Imoru Imiti

      That’s a possibility. I had a dream about another section of the Kalos region map.

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        I had a dream about being a mayor and killing a Vampire Plumber.

        • Imoru Imiti

          likely not happening, but it’s not impossible which is what you imply.

    • Pokefan

      No, Shana & Calem/Serena is with you when prof. Sycamore gives you the Kanto starter!

      • Loark A.K.A. Troublesome Treec

        Meh, at least I gave it a shot.

    • Well you have a point! It could mean that Shana and the other gender character will get the Kalos starters, while Tierno and Trevor will have the Kanto starters, because they already have one 😉

  • Randy

    Mhmmm BAD

  • gość

    mega launcher will only give boost to puls moves or also to beam and cannon moves?will mega launcher only boost power of the moves or also give high priority to those move, to make themhit first in battle?

    • Similarity

      We don’t know any of those things yet.

  • Feraligatrzilla

    Has Nintendo revealed the name of that mystery Pokemon that was battling Venusaur? I keep thinking it’s a relative of Absol.

    • Wes

      They have not announced it, and I highly doubt it’s related to Absol.

  • Daedardus

    Omg, guys, have you seen the news?
    There is apparantly this new thing called ‘Mega evolution’, where Pokémon temporarily evolve into stronger forms of themselves. Pokémon like Absol and Ampharos will get Mega evolutions.

    I seriously hope they reveal a Mega Slowpoke.

  • Reece

    By the way, the demo for the UK has been announced, from the 26th-29th of September, it requires tickets which have sold out unfortunately

  • Pangotcha

    Ok, can we seriously just take a second to marvel at this?

    • NoDice

      RNGing a Shiny Charmander is priority 1 for me now… just saying.

  • dwreker

    found out that the over-world will not be able to be seen in 3d however trainers with roller blades will teach you tricks after being defeated!!!

  • Miniryu-Ninja

    Aggghhh just away to pre-order the limited edition 3DS Xl but i can’t decide which one to get- they’re both so beautiful! Blue or Red?

    • NoDice

      Where are they allowing pre orders at?

      • Miniryu-Ninja

        GAME in the UK- went live this morning 😀

        • NoDice

          Ahhh, Im in the US so sucks to be me lol

          • Miniryu-Ninja

            Awww too bad- im sure it will go live in the US at some point soon if not today- its still only noon here in the uk so were a bit ahead of you so it might go live in a few hours.

  • •Carl Angelo•

    GUYS A NEW COMMERCIAL SHOWED SUDOWOODO WITH OOROTTO (?) OMG
    Does this mean…..

    • belmad

      …a battle between fake and real.

    • Miniryu-Ninja

      Looks completely fake to me but if sudowoodo was to be related to oorotto then i would hope oorotto would evolve from bonsly in a split evolution- maybe through bonsly being tampered with or something but its highly unlikely.

      • Reece

        I don’t think they’re related and it’s not fake, I mean sure they’re both trees but… Horsea and Skrelp are based off of seahorses and they’re not

        • talesotaku

          I see your point. Though Skrelp is based on a specific seahorse (weedy seadragon)…but then again they have a robin evolving into a falcon. :/ Typically, though, evolution shows more signs of comparative similarities besides ‘they are both trees’. Sudowoodo is a fossilized tree while Orot looks like a treant or haunted trees you see in scary cartoons…not very related.

          • Sable

            Plus, they have shown that Miltank and Tauros have been in Horde Battles together, and, despite fanon, they are officially not linked to each other, but you could still think of them as counterparts, due to the male female only, same BST. So, maybe just Orotto will be a counterpart to Sudowoodo, in that, while it can be encountered in the wild, maybe there will be some disguised as trees, and can be encountered that way. Like, maybe we could have for a change of pace, you try to cut a tree, and instead of being cut in half, it gets angry and attacks. It’s not impossible, you can fight foongus and amoongus both in the wild, and find them disguised as Pokeballs, though admittedly there was precedent for that, and their have been a few sudowoodo encounters, they do use water… *shrugs* Either way, I kind of doubt they are related, just because Orotto does look like it’s a grass type, it’s foliage looks real, as opposed to the green stone circles of Sudowoodo. We should see soon though. If not from official reveal, from the games themselves finally coming out, we just have a little over a month.

    • Wes

      That’s awesome, whether it’s real or not. 😉

      I don’t want Oorotto to be related to Sudowoodo. They’re based off of different things and they don’t similar enough to me. But a Ghost/Rock Oorotto would be cool. Have we had that combo yet?

      • TheNintendoChip

        Nope c: What would also be cool about it is that it wouldn’t be weak to fighting (rock is 2x weak to fighting)

        • gamesaq

          ghost is immune to fighting

    • Daedardus
    • If you look closely you can hear and see that it does normal damage to Sudowoodo and not very effective damage on Oorotto! They just placed them together, just like Tauros and Miltank, to define the species. I guess Oorotto will be revealed in the next Corocoro next week 😉 Second time they showed him.

      • Reece

        Hmmm I heard that as well, an electric attack is NVE against grass…could be part grass part ghost?

        • gamesaq

          or grass/rock but i hope grass/ghost

  • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

    Is there any word on whether those new 3DSXLs are going to be limited ed like the Pikachu one was?

    • Miniryu-Ninja

      Yes they are. I just pre-ordered mines and it said limited edition in the listing.

    • Daedardus

      It will be ‘limited’ yes, in the way it won’t be sold forever, but I’m sure there will be enough stock for months to come.

  • Wes

    Is pokemon bank a feature accessible from the game itself, an app like Dream Radar, or a website like Dream World?

    • Daedardus

      An app like Dream radar

      • Sable

        I think there may be some ability to access it from within the game as well, at the least I got the implication we can access it by connecting to the internet and getting Pokemon out like if it was a box. Could be wrong though.

        • Daedardus

          Well, the app pulls the data out of the online box and puts it on the card in the card slot or on the SD card if you have a digital copy.

          • TCMets

            Now if I download the app, it’s on my SD card on my 3DS right? So that if my 3DS ever broke, I would still have everything on that SD card and just put it in a new 3DS?

          • Daedardus

            No, not at all.
            Everything you buy on your 3DS gets encrypted with a specific code tied to your 3DS. If you lose your 3DS or if it breaks you’ll lose everything. Even access to your Pokémon Bank seeing as it likely is 3DS tied. That’s the Nintendo way of digital.

          • TCMets

            Ah, ok then. Thank you!

  • belmad

    Congratulations, your Magnezone is now genderless again.

    • Daedardus

      Those English images clearly are mock ups based on the Japanese ones.

    • regidudeam

      Ok this is just confusing?

  • King Phoenix

    Heres to wishful thinking that corocoro will surprise us with an early release still pullin for the 7th-12th

  • Daniel Rojas

    Mmm, in light of all of this.. I might just include my Imposter Ditto more often. Copying a Mega poke would be nice if it is possible (and having mine).

  • Trusk

    I skimmed through the Nintendo Direct and found no evidence of the screenshot of this new Pokémon. Was this shown in the middle of the trailer?

    • Mark James Colgan

      It was shown for a split second, at 15:16.

  • Trusk

    Can anyone at least Twitter Masuda if they will have the Dream World? That is a mechanic that I grew accustomed to.

    • Guest

      http://en.pokemon-gl.com/

      Check the announcements.

      • Trusk

        Hopefully, a lot of complaints will be made if the Dream World becomes unavailable by January.

  • Trusk

    Helloooooooooooooo!!! Waitin’ for a reply.

  • Trusk

    Will you still be able to transfer Pokémon that you befriend online into your game? As far as I am concerned, there will be Pokémon that will not be obtainable through normal gameplay.

  • Poboy

    Those mega evolutions seem like those fake “new gen” pokemon

  • 133megame

    Hi today I have come to tell you guys some info about x and y. The z legend is called zyxaral and the starters evolve into water fighting grass dark and fire fairy. There are also trainer equips lik the keystone and roller skates

    • Milotic4Ever

      Nice try.

  • Ultron

    Here’s what I’m confused about; is it for sure known that Sycamore will give us the original starters at the beginning of the game? Did it say when he would give them to us? It wouldn’t make much sense to give us another set of starters when we just got one. It would really take away from that whole bonding with the new starter. And the whole point at the beginning is to catch your first pokemon using your starter. It would make much more sense if he gave them to us after we beat the elite four or something. Can someone please clarify?

    • Jordin

      Here is what I believe is going to happen- Sycamore appears in the intro and says that your friends have the starters. You get the Kalos starters later when you meet Sycamore in Lumiose city he will give you the Kanto starters.

    • Sable

      Well, it appears that this is a continuation of where you get your starter, and then right before you fight the first gym, or maybe after, whichever, you get the other starter, like in Black and White, where you receive one of the Elemental Monkeys right at the beginning. Only difference being that you can choose which Kanto Starter you want, instead of having the appropriate Monkey based on your original starter, given to you. That’s what I took away from it, at least.

      • Ultron

        O okay that makes more sense now. But that also kinda stinks because I only want to use new pokemon but now I’m being tempted by these kanto starters!

        • Sable

          Understandable. It kinda screws up my wanting to do nothing but a Dark Type run, provided that Chespin evolves to a Dark Type. As having Charmander from the beginning is tempting…

      BTW, as you can see in this image https://securecdn.disqus.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/608/2989/original.jpg he says that it would be fantastic if you took another Pokemon with you. Suggesting that he will give you the Kanto starters when you meet him. He is in his lab which is located in Lumiose city also suggesting you meet him there. https://securecdn.disqus.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/608/2612/original.jpg in this image you see Shauna asking Tierno about the starters suggesting he gives you the starters.

      • Ultron

        Thank you! That cleared things right up. But now I have to make another choice as to which second starter I want. They’re all so tempting!

        • Jordin

          What I do is imagine my team. No duplicated types. If I have Pikachu I will not have another Electric type. Since your rival will have a Pokemon strong against your rival I would choose one that’s strong against her starter. That image also could imply that Shauna and Serena are getting Kanto starters too..Anyway I choose the Pokemon I like of all different types. I’m getting Chespin and Charmander, I was planning on using Talonflame but Charizard has the same typing and is better so I would choose Charmander. There I have 1/3 of my team set. 🙂 Yes Charmander would be the same type as my rival’s Pokemon but I have to choose Charmander.

          • Ultron

            I never repeat types either. I try to stick to dual types if I can. I don’t like single types as much. But I’m trying to stay away from the Kanto starters! I want a purely Kalos team. At least for my first run through of the game.

          • Jordin

            I would use, Talonflame if you don’t choose Fennekin, Sylveon or Swirlix, Helioptile, Pancham if you don’t choose Chespin, Clauncher or Skrelp, etc.

          • Ultron

            Yeah I’m probably going with Fennekin and I will most likely have Skrelp too unless there is some cooler water type. Possibly Pancham too, but that depends on if fennekin is psychic or not. If it’s not, I’m almost certain that I’m going with Malamar, so I will cover dark there instead. I might go with Helioptile as my electric, but that depends on if it evolves/is any good. I also want a fairy type so I’m hoping Spritzee evolves into fairy/flying so I can cover those there too. So it’s pretty much all up in the air at this point haha

    • thekingbrad

      im about 90% sure we get them at the beginning

      • Ultron

        Idk..that would just be so weird! I’d rather have them after a gym or 2 like some people have been saying. Course it’s not my decision. Plus I won’t even be using the Kanto starters first time through anyways so it’s not too big of an issue for me.

      • Ditto24

        We don’t meet the Prof until we reach Lumiose so it’s atleast after our first badge.

    • Kyudeci

      It would kinda be like playing Pokemon light platinum. Although you get each starter at different points in the game.

  • Rankumander

    I…LOVE these mega evolutions : D X and Y, please come out now!

  • King Phoenix

    Nintendo should make a 3ds cable hdmi cord so we can have battles on the tv

    • Daedardus

      Technically not possible, but it’d be so nice I guess.

  • Juba

    Am i the only one who is not going to use the kanto starter? (If you get one at the beginning)

    • Jess_Witt

      I’m pondering over that as well. I was considering maybe using an all Gen-VI team. In addition, it would be a bad move for me to use two grass-types throughout the game and I like both grass starters.

      • Magossa

        I’m pickin up Froakie, Squirtle, Skrelp (and Sudowoodo becuase he’s my favorite pokemon) on my team 🙂 I love my water types!

  • VirtueSereneGraceAuraHeart

    To me Mega evolutions are the hyper awesome super evolutions that I dreamed that my starter could do as a child, obviously because I was so much more powerful than every character I met and naturally it is normal for my Pokemon to have a special over powered form that no one else could have!

    This was the dream of every child that played Gen 1 back in the day, I think Game Freak are awesome for making fans dreams a reality.

    It has taken some time, but GF are starting to create the things fans have always dreamed of. Perhaps because it seems a logical extension or evolution, or maybe fans that have a deep bond with the franchise are able to just understand the kind of world that the developers are trying to bring to life!

    • ShinyXatu

      If they made a Mega Kingdra, my inner child would be so happy because I drew a 4th stage evolution many years ago. Please Gamefreak, make it happen!

  • Jess_Witt

    Shoot, I was going to start off the game with Chespin, but Bulbasaur is so tempting now that Venusaur’s mega-evolution is a defensive wall. Gah, this is so difficult!

    One quick question: do the Kanto starters have their normal abilities or DW abilities?

    • Milotic4Ever

      Most likely normal abilities, but GF loves throwing curve pokeballs at us 😉

  • Nikita Rowe

    OLA KE ASE

  • juba

    I hope there will be a megaditto. This ditto will than transform into the mega evolution of the opponent pokemon.

  • Feraligatrzilla

    Wouldn’t Mega Launcher also power up the moves Dragon Pulse and Heal Pulse? Presumably if Blastoise could learn those moves.

  • soccertrainer

    Hello I finally decided to join pokejungle.
    Anyways at the risk of sounding stupid can’t you get all of the starters if you upload them to the cloud restart and do this twice more?

  • qwerty

    I think they should not yet release the 2nd gen megavolutions. so that we’ll have something to look forward to in the 7th gen

  • kamitsw

    could that mysterious pokemon be a pre-evolution of a gryphon-like pokemon…?
